Bodegas Hijos de Juan Gil Juan Gil Monastrell 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

[91 pts Robert Parker]: A serious effort Juan Gil is fashioned from 45-year-old Mourvedre vines and is aged for 12 months in American and French oak. This rich full-bodied inky/purple-tinged cuvee exhibits aromas of scorched earth blueberries licorice and pepper a savory layered texture and remarkable opulence for a Mourvedre. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. (Robert Parker also gave the 2002 and 2003 vintages 91 pts respectively.)
