Wine: Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha 2011
Region: Campo de Borja
A quick geography lesson: Spain has 17 autonomous regions, all of which are now producing wine. 20 years ago Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Andalusia were the only regions exporting wine to the US. Now we are seeing wines from Galicia, Priorat, and Jumilla and on and on. This wine comes from a very small region, Campo de Borja, east of Rioja and south of Navarra. Deep and sweet, this Garnacha (aka Grenache) has ripe red fruit flavors, with great mouth feel and a long, silky finish. Due to its subdued tannins, it can be enjoyed without food, or matched with grilled fish or a big, juicy burger.
