2009 Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha

I wrote: "Tres Picos Borsao Garnacha 2009. It has a strong "bitter" smell. The taste reflects this." 4:30 PM

I'm still getting used to the taste of wine. There are suppose to be smells and flavors in this wine that I just can't pick up on. Come to think of it, I'm still unable to pick up on a lot of the smells and flavors in many beers.

Product Name:

Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha, is the most daring creation of the new phase of the winery. It is the result of new technologies that have been applied but without disregarding the wise tradition of wine making in the region. It has a dark ruby colour with shades of purple. At the nose there is a rich aroma of ripe berries with hints of floral tones typical of the Garnacha, a unique variety. In the mouth, it is a full bodied rich wine with a taste of blackberries, strawberries and hints of leather, vanilla and plums. It is perfectly combined with a sweet and pleasant tannin that leads to a long, balanced and smooth finish.
