Ego Bodegas 2017 Marionette Monastrell-Syrah (Jumilla)
This dark Monastrell-Syrah blend hits with a wall of milk chocolate on the nose, and, with time, things smell only more oaky and forced. A big palate is both sticky and acidic. Soupy black fruit, tomato and creamy flavors finish with another round of chocolate. This is generous but unconvincing as a serious wine. Michael Schachner

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
