Ego Bodegas Goru Gold Red Blend was awarded 93 points from Wine Spectator. Meaning it is an outstanding wine of superior character and style. And that, it is!
This wine when poured is almost deep purple in color with wonderful aromas. It is full-bodied, smooth with ripe berry flavors that end nice and dry on your palate. If I were you, I would run not walk to your wine store to pick up a bottle of this incredible wine. In one of the reviews I read, they said the wine was elegant…I totally agree!
This red blend is made up of Monastrell, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This excellent wine hails from a Spanish wine making region called Jumilla, which dates back to the Romans. This region is known for its old vine grapes and the concentrated wine it produces. The grapes for this wine were picked by hand, then macerated and fermented with skins on for 20/30 days, then aged for 12 months in new and second year American, French, and Romanian Oak Barrels.
Wine Spectator scored this 93 points saying, “This red is sleek and solid, in the modern style. Bright cherry, berry and currant flavors mingle with licorice, black tea and mineral notes, giving way to a floral and minerally finish. The firm tannins are well-integrated and juicy acidity keeps this lively.”
Mike and I enjoyed the wine with aged cheddar, crackers, and blackberries while sitting on our back porch. Life just can’t get any better.
It is an inexpensive wine…I paid $15 for this bottle meaning it’s an amazing value. The wine can be purchased through many online vendors such as World Market, Total Wine & More, and Wine Express to name a few. The price may vary. I was in World Market the other day and saw that the price for members was $12.
Hope you enjoy…cheers!
