Tres Picos, Grenache, 2008

This spanish wine from Bodegas Borsao Winery is superb. Made from the somewhat still obscure Grenache (Garnacha, in spanish) varietal, this 2008 Tres Picos is really well-rounded. Its flavor is not exactly sweet, but is characteristically fruity in essence. Light but not bland, it leaves a strong and lasting impression in the palate with nice balanced aromas of flowers and spices. Really really good. So balanced, it can please many different tastes, so it's ideal for mixed groups of people. $34 at a restaurant in Bend, OR. Found online  for $12.

  1. I had the pleasure of sharing this bottle with Eduardo. While I am not one to describe wines with fancy names. I really liked this wine. I enjoyed every sip. I would give it a 7 on a scale of 1 - 10. Really good "bang for you buck".
