A lush and full-bodied red blend of Monastrell, Syrah and Petit Verdot from the Jumilla wine region. Fragrant with ripe dark plum and blackberry aromas on the nose. More ripe dark berry, cherry, plum and mocha flavours lingering on the palate. Pair with a roast of pork

Monastrell Syrah Petit Verdot food pairings: beef burgers, stuffed flank steak, grilled flat iron steak.

Reviews and Ratings

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
