Wrongo Dongo, 2008

We just popped the cork on another value priced wine from Spain. This latest vintage of Wrongo Dongo, a 100% Monestrell wine from the Jumilla region, has a bold new label with a modern Spanish flair. This wine has a bright, deep red color and aromas of dark berry, green grass, baking spices and roasted nuts. This wine is medium bodied with straightforward blackberry and cherry flavors along with some bitter almond, minerality and black pepper on the finish. There are soft, silky tannins and gentle acidity that add to the overall package. The finish is smooth and persistent. This wine tastes like a new-world Monestrell, so no surprises here. If you want to broaden your horizons, pick up a bottle of Wrongo Dongo for any casual dinner. This is another great value from importer Jorge Ordonez that is available in the Seattle area for about $8.
