Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

I tasted two vintages from the flagship oaked Garnacha, the youngest of which was the 2018 Tres Picos Garnacha. But unfortunately, I found both vintages (this and the warmer 2017) to be overtly oaky, with aromas that masked the personality of the grape and gave them an international profile of toast, spice and smoke and a palate with similar flavors plus a bitter twist in the finish. I'd much rather drink the young unoaked Borsao Tinto Selección than this one. The technical data mentions that it spent about six months in new French oak and has 15% alcohol.

Winemaker Notes

Very intense cherry red color with tones of purple. Great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances on the nose. In the mouth, it is a well-structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with soft and silky tannin.

Mountain vineyards with an age of 35 to 60 years situated at an altitude of 600-700 meters, on stony, slimy soils with clay and limestone.
