Wrongo Dongo Monastrell 2009, Jumilla, Spain - $6.50/$26

Went to Malaga Tapas Bar for a goodbye dinner tonight and had this 100% Monastrell, which retails for $6.50/glass and $26/bottle at the restaurant. I found it online for $7 to $10/bottle. Jay Miller from Wine Advocate gave it 88 points.

This wine was so nice and smooth, and went well with everything we ordered: fried avocado, bacon-wrapped scallops, flatbread pizza with duck breast, fancy ham and cheese, asparagus with white bean dip, and paprika roasted potatoes with tomato sauce. Yum! I like this wine and want to try it again to make more detailed tasting notes!
