Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha 2013

You can't tell I've started tasting (for MW studies) from some lesser known (in Australia) regions can you?  First, a Stellenbosch pinotage (reviewed here), now a garnacha from Campo de Borja in Aragon (inland, behind Catalonia).  This wine is a 100% garnacha (grenache) and is not of shy bearing.  Purple in the glass, with a deep intensity and obvious tears, it has aromatics of cherry, leaf, pepper and cedar.  The palate is dry with low acidity and is a full bodied, intense version of grenache with flavours reminding of prunes, mulberries and liqueur.  This is a good wine if "full on", and stylistically reminds of a full throttle Barossa shiraz.  (Alc: 15%, Region: Camp de Borja, Aragon, Spain, Rating: Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? It has its place, Drink: now to 2025, Tasted: June, 2017)
