Sara d'Amato:  If I could pick only one...

The stylish passion project of Ego Bodegas between Romanian born Ioana Paunescu and Spanish Entrepreneur Santos Ortiz began in 2011 with the purchase of elevated, old vine monastrell in Jumilla. The Goru label has yielded great value time and time again behind a plethora of imaginative labels. At under $14, this organically farmed incarnation is sourced from 25-year old vines and barely oaked aged to retain maximum aromatics and freshness of fruit. Crunchy, salty and offering surprising complexity for the dollar while balancing a substantial degree of alcohol. Chill slightly for best expression.  89 pts
