This was my "gateway" wine in many ways. The first time I realized I was tasting something other than just grape juice. The first time I learned what Monastrell (Mourvedre was and what it's capable of). It's dark, velvety, smooth, seductive. It's the Barry White's voice of wines. Deep berry fruits, black olives, dark chocolate. Fantastic with fall and winter roasts, cheeses or vegetable dishes with a lot of peppers. Haven't had a vintage so far. Plus the pretty silver label makes it very presentable for a gift. Great value.

Too oaky, fruit and oak are overwhelming.

Enticing with a little coffee bean edge on the nose, it's a deep, quite powerful wine, full, intense black-fruit medley on the finish. High alcohol. While richly fruity upfront the lingering finish is dry with a lovely mineral textural quality. http://www.spittoon.biz/three_obscure_spanish_wines.html

5 The nose opens with strong wafts of plum, intermingled with notes of tobacco, cinnamon, chocolate, coffee and caramelized brown sugar. The palate launches with tobacco in the middle and spice on the top. At an hour and a half, a complex array of flavors emerges, including coffee, root beer candy, and caramelized brown sugar. The 2008 goes nicely with barbecue and other spicy meats. Between one and two hours, the wine peaks. At three hours, it begins to tighten and close, becoming bitter and thin at four hours, with a brassy, metallic edge that shortens the previously lengthy finish.

nothing too exciting, but delivers the aromas and taste of Monastrell grape.

I just bought this for $10 at bottle king. It is an exceptional Jumilla with a jammy, berry, dry and powerful flavor. Nice oak aroma and finish. I am eating it with a steak and it is a perfect complement.

I rated this a 88 at the latest Spanish Red tasting I went to in SF on Sept 28, 2010. Big, bold, smooth. Rather unlike other reds you're likely to find...and it's only $14!! A nice Monastrell. 15% alcohol.

A country-style red made from Monastrell. The nose is chubby and deeply fruity, while the plump palate offers a wave or two of blackberry and currant flavors. Flush and full, and totally uncomplicated.

Juicy flavors of cherry, black grapes and plums shine in this fresh red, and the light tannins are firm enough to give it structure. Mourvèdre. Drink now.

The 2005 Wrongo Dongo (named after one of America's great wine personalities who made this expression infamous) is a beautifully tank-fermented and aged, full-bodied red offering abundant quantities of blue and black fruits, surprisingly silky tannin, and an up-front style. Some may call it internationally styled, but at $8, who's complaining?

Jugendliches Dunkelrot. Expressives Bouquet, viel Würze, Blütenduft, rote Frucht und Holznoten. Im Gaumen sehr kräftig und füllig, vollmundig, noch jugendliche und etwas wilde Tanninstruktur. Wieder schöne, für Monastrell typische Würznoten. Schöne Länge!

The brilliantly packaged 2007 Wrongo Dongo (named in honor of Washington DC legend Jim Arseneault) is 100% Monastrell. Medium ruby-colored, it presents a nose of mineral and earth notes that jump from the glass. Ripe and flavorful, this crowd-pleasing wine will continue to drink well for another two years.

The cute packaging and name of the Wrongo Dongo are clearly meant for the American marketplace. This solid effort represents a good value. Produced from 100% Monastrell, it is a fruit-driven, easy-going red to consume during its first year or so of life.

Made of 100% Monastrell (a.k.a. Mourvèdre) in the Jumilla region of Spain, the fruit for this wine comes from old vines grown in chalky limestone. This purple-colored wine offers superb aromatics of wood smoke, damp earth, violets, and blueberry pie
