Los Dos

Brand Description

Los Dos is Spanish for "both" or "the two." 

Like two dancers coming together to create the perfect dance, Los Dos celebrates the intricate steps in the dance of winemaking. It starts with the vine finding perfect partnership with the soil. With Los Dos, the grapes are grown in estate vineyards in the renowned Campo de Borja region. This area is known for producing world-class Garnacha, where cool, dry breezes seem to animate the grapes on the vine and provide fresh flavors to the wines. The rhythm of the dance changes when the winemaker steps in— carefully harvesting and aging the grapes in stainless steel tanks resulting in fruit-forward, balanced wines.

The winery is located in the D.O. of Campo de Borja in the Aragon Province of Northern Spain. Borsao originated as a brand in 1958 when the cooperative of Borja was founded.  In 2001, the cooperatives Ponzuelo and Tabuenca joined Borja, and Bodegas Borsao S.A. was established, bringing reform and a new sense of prestige to the winemaking practices of the group.  The mission of Bodegas Borsao is to establish their wines as the benchmark for premium Garnacha wines around the world.

Location of Vineyard

Campo de Borja D.O. is located in the Aragon region,  nestled against the Pyrenées Mountains. Bodegas  Borsao  stretches  over 2,260 hectares belonging to some 375 vine-growers. The hillsides  of the Moncayo shelter the vineyards located between 350 and  800 metres of altitude, regulating cold,  heat and moderating the  effects of the North-west 'Cierzo', or wind. This region is historically and geographically conducive to growing Garnacha, which makes up 60% of the vineyards. Other varietals include, Syrah, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and minimal amounts of Mazuela, Macabeo, and Chardonnay.

Winemaking Philosophy

Los Dos's special cuvées are produced from 15- to 25-year-old vines. Aging occurs in stainless steel, which makes the wines immediately aromatic, full and friendly, with a refined length.  Winemaking techniques aim to preserve the characteristics of Garnacha from the region at all price points and quality levels. Harvest is carried out manually in key vineyards, and transported  in 20-kg cases.  The winery uses a significant 1 million frigories  cooling capacity to preserve the characteristics of  the fruit. Oak is used moderately to tame and add complexity to the wines, rather than impose its presence on them. The use of oak is adapted to the final style of the wine: different origins, both new and used wood and different sizes help to round up the expression of our wines.

"Deep ruby. Fresh red and blue fruits on the fragrant nose, along with building floral and spice notes. Appealingly jammy and seamless in texture, offering juicy raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a zesty touch of white pepper. Shows just a hint of tannins on the nicely persistent finish, which leaves a repeating red fruit note behind." 
— acclaim for 2019 Los Dos Red from Vinous, Feb 2021
“Full disclosure: I do not drink a ton of Cava since, well, I have not found many that I like (Yes, in case you were wondering, I am a champagne snob). And I have tasted far less rosé Cava (in fact, I am having difficulty thinking of any Rosé Cavas I have tried). Well, that might have to change as this is delicious. Salmon color in the glass with red berry fruit, rose petal, and wet rock. The palate is subtle, but with good fruit flavors balanced with zingy acidity and a spritzy sparkle. Again, I do not have a ton of experience here, but this wine is delightful.” (Very Good)
