Editorial Reviews for Wrongo Dongo Jumilla Red

Sweet black fruit, rosemary and licorice notes greet the nose along with bright, almost grassy herb notes and gentle suggestions of wood smoke. Smooth on entry, this shows some firm tannins supporting the earthy, slightly balsamic and gamy core of fruit. This might be a touch soft and it drops off on the back end a bit, but it does have fine depth of lightly creamy and vanilla-accented dark, leathery fruit on the palate. Plenty of spicy accents pepper the licorice-tinged, blackcurrant finish that is rich with chewy fruit tannins. A touch on the tough side but an attractive wine. 87pts

The wine itself is a deep ruby color in the glass, giving you a sense that this is a heartier Spanish wine, which it is, as Monastrell is the Spanish version of Mourvedre, which is a blending grape in the Southern Rhone, but a primary grape in many wines from Southeast Spain. The nose is very rustic, with aromas of leather, sagebrush and forest floor accented by rich ripe fruit, blackberries, ripe cherries and plums. The taste is delightfully fruit forward, with a burst of ripe berries and prune that mellows through the midpalate where there is a smooth transition to some mint and herb notes. The tannins are somewhat tight, allowing the fruit and spice notes to really carry through on the finish.

My Rating 85: Simple very dry wine that has no special memorable taste. The nose is clean and straight, but no complexity. Nothing wrong for everyday drinking. Wine has 14.5% alcohol. Another prove that you cannot taste the alcohol content. I once tried 92% chemical factory alcohol and found almost no taste at all, except a dehydration warmth. So all all these people that say you taste the percentage of alcohol are idiots. Or in a nicer tone uneducated drinkers!! They might be confused by the high content of taste material like acid ,sugar , glycol and various combinations of aldehydes.

Fruity, tasty, but unmemorable. Drinks quick due to simplicity of flavor.

Rating: 86. A simple sweetish fruit red wine with a firm structure and a stringent finish. Nose is balanced, fruity non offensive with no special character.

Named after a well-known Washington, DC wine merchant, Jim Arsenault, the 2011 Wrongo Dongo is 100% Mourvedre from the appellation of Jumilla, a viticultural region first discovered by Jorge Ordonez. This totally tank-fermented and aged effort is one of the top bargains in the wine world. Deep ruby/purple-colored with notes of blue and black fruits, crushed rocks, earth, forest floor and pepper, this medium to full-bodied red over-delivers. Since its inception, it has been a terrific bargain. Drink it over the next several years. (sourced from vines planted on limestone-dominated soil; no oak): Bright purple. Intense aromas of black and blue fruits, with a spicy overtone. Powerful, sharply delineated boysenberry and cherry flavors show very good intensity and gain sweetness with air. Closes with zesty cut, lingering spiciness and a hint of dusty tannins.

(raised completely in stainless steel): Bright violet color. Highly perfumed bouquet offers fresh blackberry, blueberry, potpourri and peppery spices. Pliant, medium-bodied dark berry flavors show good freshness and energy, picking up silky tannins with air. Turns tighter on the back, with the sweet dark fruit qualities echoing. This is pretty sexy stuff, especially for the price. The 2010 Wrongo Dongo, (a phrase made famous by the legendary Diamond Jim Arseneault), is a 100% Monastrell cuvee made from Jumilla grapes. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, it offers up a fruity nose with plenty of spice and floral notes. Ripe and savory on the palate, it has enough structure to provide pleasure for another 3-4 years.
