Our latest Costco pick - a Monastrell based blend boasting big scores and 18 months in oak, the Ego Bodegas Infinito Red Blend.
A blend of 70% Monastrell (Mourvedre), 20% Syrah, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from Jumilla, Spain. It is aged 18 months in new American oak barrels and is also vegan friendly.
This vintage of the Ego Bodegas Infinito boasts lots of big scores including 93 points from Wine Spectator. Wine Enthusiast lists the SRP as $75 in their review (which is ridiculous) but with an average price of $20 on wine-searcher, the $14.99 price tag at Costco is a great deal. It is imported by Tri-Vin Imports.
Vineyards of more than 40 years old located at 900m altitude and a maximum control in the elaboration, give us an extraordinary limited edition of this wine.
The 2016 Ego Bodegas Infinito begins with a strong, enticing nose with lots of well-integrated aromas. Dark fruit, spice, a little vanilla, a little tobacco, cocoa, licorice and more all combine wonderfully in the bouquet.
The wine tastes smooth, deep, dark, dense and delicious with similar flavors to the nose plus a bit of a balsamic edge. Nicely balanced, everything just works together quite wonderfully here. It is still a bit young at this point though so be sure to give it some time to breathe. It ends dry, very long and chewy. Excellent!
It's also similar in style to the Goru 18m from the same winery that has previously been at Costco.
