BODEGAS BORSAO “Tres Picos” Garnacha 2019
(Campo de Borja, Spain) $20
I can’t imagine a better $20 red. Tres Picos (Three Peaks) is the kind of wine that’s both delicious and sophisticated. It has the classic flavor of Garnacha –super rich cherry preserves—plus vanilla bean, espresso, white chocolate and notes of tobacco. Garnacha (known in France as Grenache) is often thought of as a French grape variety, but in fact, it’s Spanish. And the northern area called Campo de Borja may well be this grape’s birthplace. The wine’s texture—somewhere between silk and velvet—is superb. No raspy hard edges of tannin here. Bodegas Borsao was founded in 2001 and soon after that, I visited. I was impressed then, and I’m still so today.
