Natalie's Score: 91/100

Borsao Tres Picos is a full-bodied 100% Grenache red from the Campo de Borja wine region located in south Rioja. Lots of mocha and dark chocolate aromas on the nose that are then flooded with lusciously ripe black fruit on the palate. Full-bodied and smooth. The 2016 vintage is great value under $20. This winery is comprised of 100% Garnacha grapes. The grapes for this wine grow on old vines, which provides additional concentration and flavour. Great structure. A rich darkly hued colour in the glass. A long, satisfying finish. Pair with grilled steak.

Garnacha food pairings: veal chops in red wine sauce, turkey tetrazzini, soft cheeses.

Borsao Tre Picos is a full-bodied 100% Grenache red from the Campo de Borja wine region located in south Rioja. Grapes are from old vines Grenache. Look for smoky dark fruit, dried herbs and cracked pepper on this well-priced red. Pair with grilled pork ribs. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
