Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of blackberry, plum, and black cherry and strawberry jam with hints of mocha and smoke. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, with medium+acidity, lots of ripe fruit, and a bit of oaky smoke on the finish. Enjoy this with marinated flank steak.
L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deep dark ruby coloured wine with purple hue, dry, smooth tannins and balanced acidity. Pronounced aromas of spice, vanilla, blackberry, black cherry and plums with a hint of pot pourri evolve to include rich chocolate. These flavours continue to the palate. We tasted with wedges of Edam and Gouda; perfect combination. My tasting group enjoyed sipping it on its own too. It would go very well with roast pork and beef dishes. I opened this wine an hour before drinking and it paid off; wine still continued to evolve pleasantly. A true value wine.
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The El Goru 2018, from the Bodegas Ego, located in the Jumilla region of Spain, shows aromas of blackberry jam, black raspberry, black olive, oregano, roasted meat, mocha and oak. A full-bodied wine, this Spaniard delivers supple tannins and a fruity finish. Made from Monastrell (Mourvedre), Syrah and Petit Verdo, this lovely blend provides flavors of strawberry, cherry, black pepper, tobacco, vanilla and oak. Enjoy!
From Bodegas Ego in the Jumilla wine region, El Gorú 2018 is a full-bodied red blend of Monastrell, Syrah and Petit Verdot with blackberry, ripe plums, earthy florals, dark chocolate and peppery spice flavours on the palate. Nicely done! Pair with grilled lamb chops. - Community Wine Reviews
