Tres Picos Garnacha 2007 wine review by (PB)
From the folks who produce some fine value wines at the Bodegas Borsao, this Spanish Grenache is culled from old vines with low yields.
It presents with a nice garnet hue and aromas of sweeter wild berries and spice reminiscent of Zinfandel with white pepper notes at the end.
Palate--First impression of dark spices, pepper corns, and some palate heft with a tannic streak that adds weight to the bold dark berry wine with wood accents and nice hint of vanilla on the nice and lasting finish.
This wine will only get better and at $15, I wish I had another one to lay down for a couple more years but it's drinking really well now.
I am pairing this with some spare ribs cooked in my All Clad slow cooker which I will put over some home made pasta and then I will raise a glass!
