Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha 2016
|Region||Spain, Campo de Borja|
The minty and balsamic 2016 Tres Picos Garnacha is difficult to identify as Garnacha. It matured in new French oak barrels for five months, which gives it a roasted and smoky character. It's very intense and might overpower food. It has abundant tannins and a dusty texture. A very oaky red in the end-of-the-1990s style.
Kirsch, candied orange and vanilla flavors are bold and sweet in this exuberant red. Light tannins and tangerine acidity keep this lively. Drink now through 2021.
