The Greatest Red Value in the World... AGAIN!
Tres Picos 2014 Garnacha
Rank #39 Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2016

This wine has scored 90~92 Points in eleven consecutive vintages


"Blends power, depth and finesse in a way that's uncommon at anywhere near this price point. Closes sweet, supple and very long, with velvety tannins..."
-Stephen Tanzer, 92 Points

"blackberry and boysenberry flavors mingle with notes of toast, menthol and mineral, backed by well-integrated tannins and juicy acidity. A modern style, with balance and depth."
-Wine Spectator, 91 Points & Rank #39 WS Top 100

"It's a beautiful wine, with plenty of Southern Rhône-like black cherry liqueur, garrigue, pepper, licorice and spice. It is medium to full-bodied, lusty and heady. This is a beauty to drink over the next 2-3 years."
-Robert Parker, 90 Points

Tres Picos comes from Bodegas Borsao, situated in Spain's northwest province of Zaragoza, within the region of Moncayo. Their Campo de Borja is located in Aragon, in northeastern Spain. Its origins go back to 1958, the year the Cooperative of Borja was founded. This is where Borsao originated as a brand. Some years later, the co-operatives of Pozuelo and Tabuenca joined Borja, adding their resources and - most importantly - their vineyards. 

Tres Picos is the Bodega's top cuvée of 100% Grenache from older, head-pruned vines planted on the hillsides of the Moncayo Mountains. It comes from mountain vineyards with an age of 35 to 60 years situated at an altitude of 600-700 meters, on stony soils with clay and limestone. Yields were less than two tons of fruit per acre. Unlike previous vintages, this wine now spends some time in a combination of older French oak barrels (for 5 months) as well as stainless steel. This gem is consistently a customer favorite, thanks to its incredibly rich flavors and incredibly low pricing. No wonder Robert Parker frequently rates it as one of the best values out there!

Perfect for just about any meal, this is a no-brainer red to enjoy now and often over the coming months.

Gracias,

92 Points Stephen Tanzer:
 
"(fermented in a combination of French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, then aged in French oak for ten months before bottling): Bright violet color. Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet of ripe red and dark berries, incense and candied flowers, with a smoky mineral overtone and a hint of Asian spices. Intense, deeply pitched raspberry liqueur and cherry-cola flavors stain the palate while displaying a distinctly vibrant quality. Blends power, depth and finesse in a way that's uncommon at anywhere near this price point. Closes sweet, supple and very long, with velvety tannins coming in late to add shape and gentle grip. These bush vines date back to the early 1920s and yield less than two tons of fruit per acre." - Josh Raynolds (September 2015)

Wine Spectator:
 
"A plush texture masks the firm structure of this red, as blackberry and boysenberry flavors mingle with notes of toast, menthol and mineral, backed by well-integrated tannins and juicy acidity. A modern style, with balance and depth. Drink now through 2020." -TM (Dec. 31, 2016) 

90 Points - Robert Parker:
 
"The outstanding 2014 Tres Picos (Garnacha) is 100% Grenache and comes from some of their oldest Grenache vineyards on the slopes of the Moncayo Mountains. Yields are less than two tons of fruit per acre and this wine was aged in neutral French oak and stainless-steel tanks for ten months prior to bottling. It's a beautiful wine, with plenty of Southern Rhône-like black cherry liqueur, garrigue, pepper, licorice and spice. It is medium to full-bodied, lusty and heady. This is a beauty to drink over the next 2-3 years."
