2015 Bodegas Ego Goru 18M
2015 Bodegas Ego Goru 18M “Cocoa, espresso and licorice flavors frame a core of currant, blood orange and menthol details in this rich red. Muscular tannins and citrusy acidity support the thick texture. Bold and heady, in the modern style. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2020 through 2030.” The Wine Spectator, 91 Points
Rated 91 Points from The Wine Spectator at the release price of $85 a bottle, this full-bodied red from Bodegas Ego has been our #1 selling Spanish wine. The Bodegas Ego Goru 18M 2015 comes from the region of Jumilla which is making some of the finest big rich reds coming out of Spain. I am sure you all know the spectacular El Nido Clio and wines from Juan Guil. These wines come from Jumilla.
The wine comes from 60 year old vines, low yields resulting in awesome concentration and opulence. The wine has incredible red and black rich fruits and the 18M refers to aging in oak for 18 months. The wine is drinking superbly with a breathe and will over the next five years. This is a big, rich, monster red that and is a phenomenal buy on a wine that will give immense drinking pleasure. Back up the truck on this one.
