Found this at discount liquor and didn’t realize it was organically grown. Just an amazing full bodied wine that’s really smooth. — 2 days ago

Bodegas Ego

Infinito Jumilla Monastrell Blend

It took a day, but I finally pegged the very distinct profile of this terroir/build combo: Lodi Zinfandel that is brooding and lacking clarity/crispness of black cherry fruit. So, that is just the taste-like reference. The blend is both compelling and illustrious of Jumilla’s verve. 15$ is a great value - punches at twice the price. What is unique: the high, roof of the mouth tannin effect and the subsequent long sinus-driven finish. Almost the Ricola of wines ;) — 10 days ago

El Salze Monastrell 2017

Good value at $10. A solid, well balanced full body wine. A nice alternative to a Cali zin. — 2 days ago
