Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Jumilla Albacea 2006
From the seemingly exotic climate and unique soil of the Jumilla region comes a wine bursting with rich fruit flavors and luscious aromas of sweet and exotic spices. The deep violet color and long, well balanced tannins add to the enjoyment of the wine. Despite its name you can't go wrong with Wrongo Dongo. The wine has plenty of stuffing to hold its own with the heartiest of roasts, steaks and barbeque, yet the forward fruit flavors lends the wine to lighter dishes as well as simply enjoying it on its own with friends. Dongo to the party without it!
I love the fruity aroma, then it has dark berries on the tongue with oaky tannins on the finish. Very nice. Will definately buy this again!
Very berry nose, fruity but not too sweet. Better with food.
You can't buy a better wine for under $10. Surprising good both on its own and with food. This is my "go to" wine for drinking day-in and day-out.
Every time I buy this wine I am amazed it costs less than $10. Truly a great buy. And a very cool name and label!
I had this wine with dinner last night at a tapas restaurant. Fruity and light, and not very tart. Not the most complex wine, but it was enjoyable.
