From Campo de Borja, in northeast Spain, comes Borsao Garnacha. Garnacha is also known as grenache. The attractive, modern front label simply says “Borsao Garnacha 2009,” leaving the consumer to search the fine print on the back label to discern where the wine actually comes from. Personally, I find this annoying, but I guess it’s a nod to the dumbed-down wine labeling of the times.
While the importer is present on a social networking site, they don’t list a corporate web site on their label. No matter how I tweaked my search terms, I couldn’t turn one up. Again, this is disappointing. In the 21st century, how can one not promote one’s business online?
The bouquet has sweet red fruit with cinnamon and grilled meat nuances. On the palate, it’s medium bodied with plum and strawberry flavors nicely balanced by soft tannins. Warm finish. Great value; great everyday red wine. Approximately $7.00. Imported by Tempranillo Inc., New Rochelle NY.
