Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha 2017
|Region||Spain, Campo de Borja|
Smoky, toasty and cocoa notes frame a core of ripe blackberry, currant, blood orange and licorice flavors in this fruit-centered red. Well-integrated tannins and orange peel acidity keep this focused. Drink now through 2029. 32,000 cases made, 18,000 cases imported.
Once upon a time, Tres Picos was one of the best value wines from Campo de Borja, but in recent years it has become nothing more than oaked-up commercial juice. Aromas of mint and clove dominate, while the mouthfeel is cloying and resiny. Clove and raw wood flavors carry over to the finish.
