Borsao Garnacha

Until now, the 2009 vintage of this wine was, at $5.99, the least expensive wine to receive a three-star rating from us. Despite inflation in nearly every other consumer sector over the last year, the 2010 vintage of the Borsao still sells for $5.99. And, we are pleased to report, it is every bit the bargain that the 2009 was. Upon opening, there’s a very slight barnyard aroma. This soon deepens into a forest floor smell, and after 20 minutes or so develops into a woodsy backing to the ripe berry fruit that is the wine’s most prominent quality. This is in the New World style and is unoaked.
