As Spain's winemaking revolution matures, Jumilla continues to produce some of the world's great wine values. The region's native Monastrell, Mourvedre elsewhere, is one of the most prized varieties of Mediterranean Europe. And on account of the reliably hot, dry summers, ripeness is rarely an issue. Yet Jumilla has a diversity of terroirs, certain of which clearly transcend mere "value." And the wines of Bodegas Ego have done just that, thanks to a singular terroir and the perspective necessary to give it a meaningful voice. An alluring blend of 75% Monastrell and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 12 months in premium oak barrels, this is one of the most exciting value wines we've ever found.
"Cola, sassafras and clove notes frame a deep core of plum and currant fruit in this dense red. The texture is plush and polished, supported by well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2020." Wine Spectator, 90 Points
