2017 Bodegas Ego Goru Gold

 
This wine is absolutely delicious. NOT “delicious for the price.” Delicious at any price which, when it’s rated 93 points by Wine Spectator, means a price of at least $30-$35. But wait! The wine will continue to evolve and improve in the bottle for the balance of the decade. Aha! In that case, anything less than $45-$50 a bottle is a bargain. As the Wine Spectator said: “93 Points! This red is sleek and solid, in the modern style. Bright cherry, berry and currant flavors mingle with licorice, black tea and mineral notes, giving way to a floral and minerally finish. The firm tannins are well-integrated and juicy acidity keeps this lively. Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2029.” Unbelievably enough, Goru Gold can be had for as little as $9.99/bottle, proof positive that Luis is nuts. Buy this by the case.
