Winery Notes:

Intense cherry red colour. Remarkable aromatic complexity with memories of black fruit and balsamic and toasted touches. Warm and gentle in the mouth, with soft but persistent tannins in perfect balance with the alcohol.

This red is thick yet fresh, fruit-centered but with savory elements for balance. Blackberry, currant, licorice, cocoa and loamy earth flavors mingle over firm, well-integrated tannins, focused by balsamic acidity. In the modern style. Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2030. 10,000 cases made, 4,000 cases imported.

Ripe blackberry and black cherry aromas come with Christmas spice, fennel seed and nutmeg accents. This Garnacha-based red blend is big and sappy, as should be expected from Campo de Borja. Mildly woody black fruit flavors are roasted and warm, while this delivers on a spicy finish.

Ripe dark cherries and berries with wild herbs and background oak spice. This has a very rich and vibrant feel with a succulent, juicy and impressively ripe core of dark and redder-fruit flavors.

The red blend 2016 Berola contains mostly Garnacha and Syrah (not sure what the difference is with Bolé) with a similar profile as the rest of the portfolio, ripe red and black fruit somewhat dulled by the use of oak-in this case, 14 months in French and American oak barrels (70% and 30%, respectively). It has more dark chocolate and vanilla aromas, but I still prefer the Bolé. 100,000 bottles.
