This is a fun wine and it is hard not to like it so I chose to like it for what it is... a fun wine. Same same every year, full of fruit and sure to please your guests because it is easy to drink and perfect for BBQ.

Vera rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Intense aroma of dark cherries and light aroma of wild flowers. Beautiful, ruby color with purple tones. On the palate you taste ripe fruit, blackberries or dark cherries, dark chocolate and fine spicing.

It reminds me of a really good Cotes du Rhone red.

Garnacha here is incredibly balanced with just right amount of acidity and silky tannins. It’s worth to decant it or at least to leave the bottle open for an hour or so.

It will slowly grow on your tongue, as you continue sip it. To me, this is very seductive, clean, elegant and impressive wine with a really long finish.

Tres Picos is a wine of ridiculous value (as it always was) and I need to buy some more before it’s gone!

Natalie's Review

Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha 2010, D.O., Campo De Borja, Spain: Some mocha and dark chocolate on the nose is quickly flooded with lusciously ripe black fruit on the palate. Full-bodied and smooth. This winery is located south of Rioja and is comprised of 100% Garnacha grapes. The wine itself was matured in 50/50 stainless steel and French barrels. A long, satisfying finish. Pair with hearty meat dishes. Drink: 2013-2019. 273748 14.50% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 93/100. January 19, 2013 Top Rated Red Wine. Voluptuous Veal Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
