This blend of 70% Garnacha, 20% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, shows the finesse of the Borsao line. Crafted from selected small parcel fruit, from the Tabuenca, Borja, and Pozuelo oldest vineyards. 

About the Vineyard

Mountain vineyards with an age of 35 to 60 years for the Garnacha and 17 years for the Syrah. Both are cultivated at an altitude of 600-700 meters on stony, slimy soils with clay and limestone.

Tasting Notes

Intense cherry red color. Remarkable aromatic complexity with notes of black fruit, light balsamic and toasted touches that remind of BBQ and a vanillia chocolate cake. Cherry cola, lavender, bright red and black preserves in the mouth, full bodied with rich complexity

Food Pairing

Goes well with beef, pork, pasta, cheese, and rice based dishes like paella.
