Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I tasted two vintages from the flagship oaked Garnacha, the youngest of which was the 2018 Tres Picos Garnacha. But unfortunately, I found both vintages (this and the warmer 2017) to be overtly oaky, with aromas that masked the personality of the grape and gave them an international profile of toast, spice and smoke and a palate with similar flavors plus a bitter twist in the finish. I'd much rather drink the young unoaked Borsao Tinto Selección than this one. The technical data mentions that it spent about six months in new French oak and has 15% alcohol. 200,000 bottles.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Aged for 5 months in new French oak barrels.
