Tres Picos Old Vine Garnacha 2010
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 92pt
One of my favorite offerings from the Bodegas Borsao is the 6,000-case cuvee of the 2010 Tres Picos. Made from 100% Garnacha aged in equal parts stainless steel and French oak, this is the Bodegas Borsaoâ€™s interpretation of Chateauneuf du Pape. (But whenâ€™s the last time you saw a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape priced at $17 â€“ about 30 years ago?) Deep notes of roasted herbs, sweet black cherries and raspberries, peppers and spice soar from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Full-bodied, rich, ripe, silky textured, pure and long, this unbelievable value should drink well for 3-4 years.
