Ego Bodegas Infinito 2016
Dense and velvety, this big red delivers flavors of currant, blackberry, cocoa and licorice. Ripe and heady, but well-integrated tannins and bright acidity keep this fresh and balanced. In the modern style. Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028. 12,500 cases made, 10,000 cases imported.
A dense nose is loaded to the hilt with ripe berry, raisin and prune aromas. This Monastrell-led blend is giant on the palate, with rubbing tannins. Forceful oak results in chocolate and vanilla flavors on top of blackberry fruit, while on the finish graphite and herbal-medicinal notes help with complexity.
