Overview of the Wine
Founded in 1958 in the town of Borja, called Borsao in the 4th century B.C., this winery represents what can be done with Garnacha, a grape that is not well appreciated by the Spanish press. Through meticulous selection, work in the fields and at reception time in the winery, modern winemaking produces this highly fruity wine. One of the best examples of the region known as "The Garnacha land of Spain", the lower part of the Ebro River.

Winemaker's Tasting Note
Very intense cherry red color with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth, it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin.
Pair with barbecue, vegetables, beef and pork, rice and pasta based dishes. Also goes well with cheese and hearty meals, such as chili, shepard's pie, and lasagna.
90 Points - James Suckling
Berry and cedar aromas follow through to a medium body with firm tannins and a savory finish. Just a hint of toffee at the end. Drink now.
90 Points - Wine Spectator
A rich red in a modern style, with an overtone of toasty smoke and a firm frame of tannins swathed in flavors of blackberry, blueberry and menthol. Fresh, spiced finish.
