Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"One of my favorite offerings from the Bodegas Borsao is the 6,000-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." (10/12)

Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report:

"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, creme 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." (03/12)

Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media:

"Glass-staining purple. 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." (11/12)

Wine Spectator:

"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. 5,000 cases imported. -TM" (04/12)

Product Description:

WINE:
"Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin." -Winery
