BORSAO CAMPO DE BORJA - 2007
From Spain with 14% alcohol. A blend of 75% Garnacha and 25% Tempranillo. Fermented and aged in stainless steel.
Vibrant red color with black pepper and grape candy on the nose. Raspberries and red fruit with licorice and liqueur. Meaty and ripe. Some back-end heat detracts a bit from the wine.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
For $8 a bottle it is pretty hard to complain about the quality. This wine has a great QPR. I wish it had a more finesse and a little less alcohol on the finish. That is all that is keeping this effort from being superior.
