2021 Borsao Seleccion Garnacha

90 Points Antonio Galloni's Vinous
In stock
A great price for a Spanish red that "is ridiculously easy to drink and delivers really great value" according to Josh Raynolds of Vinous. It is a deliciously classic style of Garnacha from the region of Campo de Borja, where old vines and an ideal climate produce a red that is rich and full but also offers those brighter expressions of red fruits and florals. A no-brainer at this price, the Borsao is a great option for the winter cupboard and table. Get in quick!

Its Origins

"One of my favorite value wineries, Bodegas Borsao was founded in 1958 and Jorge Ordoñez has been bringing these wines into America since he started his company, Fine Estates From Spain, in 1987. He literally put the Campo de Borja appellation on the map, and has done much to encourage consumer attraction to the Grenache grape that is grown in abundance. This winery owns 3,700+ acres of vines, one-third planted with Grenache and the rest Tempranillo, Viura, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mazuelo. All the vineyards are planted at relatively high elevations above 1,300 feet. The soils tend to be poor in organic material, but high in chalk/limestone intermixed with sand, iron and gravel. The hallmark of the Borsao wines are their unmanipulated, fresh, lively fruit character." Parkers Wine Advocate.

What The Critics Say

90/100 Vinous, Josh Raynolds (2019 vintage)

"Brilliant magenta. Smoke-tinged dark berries, cracked pepper and a hint of gaminess on the pungent nose. Chewy and tightly focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and boysenberry flavors that unfurl and become sweeter on the back half. Lingers with very good persistence on the finish, which features silky tannins and a strong echo of sweet blue fruit. This wine is ridiculously easy to drink and delivers really great value."
