($10) Pretty strawberry and vanilla nose that at times is overwhelmed by dried out vanilla oak. Medium bodied with sweet red fruit and a dry finish, again probably from the oak. Decent acid and fruit balance. Imminently quaffable. Reminds me of Rioja. Fades quickly based on its showing day two.
($10) I've tasted all the other Borsao offerings and this one maintains the value I've come to expect but offers some unique qualities as well. The nose has Rioja-like notes - vanilla, liqueur, red fruits, and a hint of what I think might be oxidation, but it comes across as a nuance, not a defect. Juicy red fruits on the palate with some tangy acidity. Pretty nice.
