Of this wine, Steve Tanzer of the International Wine Cellar wrote: "To call this a bargain would be a severe understatement." I agree. I started buying Vina Borgia with the 2004 vintage when it was $5.69 a bottle. The 2007 vintage is now selling at Village Corner in Ann Arbor, among other places, for a whole 30 cents more a bottle. Considering the price, I once assumed this was a wine for early drinking, but I have a few bottles of this 2005 remaining from my original case, and it is drinking beautifully.
The color is a very deep brilliant crimson. Vina Borgia is an old vines 100 percent Grenache wine, and the aromas come forward readily as a distinctly Spanish Grenache--berries, flowers, herbs, spice and green olives. Ripe blueberries take center stage on the palate along with the spice and herbal notes. The fruit concentration is remarkable, and the finish is long and satisfying. A bargain? No question about it. And I suspect this wine will keep getting better for at least a year or two.
