The 2017 Goru Gold explodes from the glass with aromas and flavors of red and black berries, bright red cherry, fresh chopped herbs and milk chocolate. The complex flavors continue to unfold as the wine opens up revealing notes of violet, tea leaf and smoky bacon leading to a mineral-driven finish. This wine is so juicy and full of flavor that it is nearly impossible to resist!
A new entrant into the Jumilla wine scene, Bodegas Ego was founded in 2011 with the mission of making great, affordable wines, and doing so at a profit. Yes, they are refreshingly upfront in acknowledging that to ensure the future of their winery, profit is equally as essential as quality! While that pulls back a bit of the romantic veneer, we really love their honesty.
Writing a spot-on review, Wine Spectator awards a giant 93 points to this juicy and energetic blend of Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. If there ever was a clear candidate for their "Top 100" list, this is it!
"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. Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2029. 7,400 cases made, 2,200 cases imported."
- 93 Points, Wine Spectator (8/31/2020)
At Wine Spectator's quoted release price of $20, this is the least expensive Jumilla wine to earn 93 points in 15 years. Amazingly, we offer it today for half that price! With a drinking window stretching out nine years and our lowest-in-country price of $9.99, this Spanish treat is going to fly out by the multiple caseload!
