2015 "Campo de Borja"
91 Robert Parker
Hope everyone is doing well after a stormy night in Southern California!
We have the new release of a wine that surely the majority of you, who have been customers over the years, will easily identify. One of the most consistently delicious wines year in and year out, it is without a doubt a customer favorite. No wonder Robert Parker calls this winery, "My favorite value winery not only in Spain, but in the world, is Bodegas Borsao in the up-and-coming appellation of Campo de Borja in the provence of Zaragoza."
From Robert Parker: "Clearly one of the greatest values in the wine world, is the 2015 Tres Picos. It is a large cuvée of 24,000 cases from 100% Grenache, fermented in both oak and steel and aged in French oak prior to being bottled. The vines come from a relatively high elevation of nearly 2,300 feet from a vineyard planted in 1956. This wine shows loads of classic Grenache characteristics, such as pepper, licorice, underbrush, Provençal herbs and a boatload of black cherries and raspberries. The wine is rich, medium to full-bodied, pure and luscious and hedonistic. Drink it over the next several years."
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
See you soon!
