Fuerza Ego Bodegas 2011

The 2011 Fuerza is mainly Monastrell with 25% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented traditionally and aged 12 months in barriques. The nose shows a mixture of esparto grass, Mediterranean herbs, paprika and tree bark over the core of black cherries. The palate is quite savory, with fine, although abundant tannins that would do better with some powerful meat dishes. -LG

Firm and focused, this red delivers lively flavors of cherry, berry, toast and vanilla, with orange peel acidity and light, firm tannins. Not a big wine, but has energy. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2019.–TM

Rich dark fruit and roasted meat aromas.  There is lots of ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit leading to moderate tannin and acid.  It is fairly big and still young.  Lots of fruit and power-that’s my kind of wine. This would go great with roasted or grilled meat. Run out and buy some!
