Beautifully polished and downright suave the 2010 Tres Picos is 100% Garnacha that was fermented all in stainless steel and then aged half in French oak and half in stainless steel for 10 months. Boasting knockout aromas of creamy blackberry and blueberry crème caramel licorice and violets on the nose the wine is medium to full-bodied on the palate and gorgeously textured and balanced possessing a rich layered mouth feel integrated acidity and solid finish that pumps out loads of fruit. While definitely modern in style this isn't flabby in the least and has real character and depth. While superb now with a short decant it should continue to shine for 5-8 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

One of my favorite offerings from the Bodegas Borsao is the 6000-case cuvee of the 2010 Tres Picos. Made from 100% Garnacha aged in equal parts stainless steel and French oak this is the Bodegas Borsao's interpretation of Chateauneuf du Pape. (But when's the last time you saw a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape priced at $17 - about 30 years ago?) Deep notes of roasted herbs sweet black cherries and raspberries peppers and spice soar from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Full-bodied rich ripe silky textured pure and long this unbelievable value should drink well for 3-4 years. -Robert Parker

Lively faintly medicinal aromas of cherry blueberry and licorice plus hints of smoky herbs and flowers. Juicy and expansive offering sweet deeply pitched bitter cherry and dark berry flavors supported by a taut spine of acidity and fine-grained tannins. Finishes with powerful spicy thrust and suggestions of candied flowers and woodsmoke. This could pass for a northern Rhone wine and a really good one at that.

This rich red is brimming with raspberry jam chocolate licorice and wild herb flavors. Firm tannins are well-integrated and buoyed by orange peel acidity. A lively modern style. Drink now through 2015. -T.M.

Dark ruby with a bright rim. The rich opulent nose is loaded with dark red and purple fruits spice and a touch of fresh cut herbs.

The rich opulent nose is loaded with dark red and purple fruits spice and a touch of fresh cut herbs. Modern and smoothly textured with great persistence and a nice balance of fruit structure and soft powdery tannins. This is a fun wine that definitely overdelivers for its modest price point. Drink now through 2015.
