You Can't Go Wrongo with the Dongo
A friend of ours coined that phrase when trying the 2007 Monastrell from Wrongo Dongo. It's a flavorful yet inexpensive red wine from Spain that is light enough to compliment just about any dinner, but strong enough to enjoy on its own. Fruity, a little smokey, not real sweet.
Last night we sampled the 2008 with a fancy new label and much higher price point (when ordering at Dexter's, that is). For me, the first taste was more tart than I expected, but as the wine sat, the subtle fruit flavors I remembered developed and was a nice addition to the meal. Retail seems to be under $10\bottle, so like we said, you can't go wrongo!
