How is it possible to top Robert Parker’s assessment that this is, “Possibly the single greatest dry wine value in the world”? We can’t, but it is interesting to note that another wine from Bodegas Borsao was the most popular entry in our Wine Thing last January. The Berolda Red Wine was another in a string of great values we have scored from Spain. We love them so much, we’re going to two Spanish wine tastings in San Francisco over the next couple of weeks.

The Wine Advocate Review (90 points): The Wine Advocate Review (90 points): Another outstanding effort is the 2011 Tinto, fermented and aged in stainless steel. Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world, this is an unbelievable wine. And don’t complain that you can’t find any, as there are 15,000 cases available, and any wine retailer worth his weight should be stockpiling this wine next to the cash register. Its deep purple/ruby color is followed by classic aromas of kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, loamy soil and flowers. This medium to full-bodied wine possesses remarkable depth, an expansive texture and wonderful freshness as well as purity. On taste alone, this beauty could easily sell for $30 to $50 a bottle. –-Robert Parker
