This new wine made in Bodegas Borsao, Campo de Borja is not only attractive by the label, but wait till you taste it! Young but hearty, ripe and textured wine that didn’t age in oak, is a clear, full expression of rich fruit coming from volcanic soils of Moncayo.

The 2008 Monte Oton is more expressive aromatically. Spicy and vibrant on the palate and with a bit more depth and structure, this crowd-pleaser should also drink well for at least another 3-4 years.
Fruity, spicy and attractive up front, with a ripe blend of plum, raspberry and pepper flavors. Unbelievably focused for such an inexpensive wine, yet it’s also a little bit juicy and wild. Great, complex wine with a long finish. With a retail tag of $8 – $9 this is an excellent value!!
