Bodegas Hijos de Juan Gil Juan Gilmonastrell 2007

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.)

Juan Gil winery is located in the heart of the vineyard, in the north hillside De Cerezo which belongs to the property. This mountain, which is covered in trees, shelters the back of the installations, the rest is surrounded by vineyards. In this shady place, the cellar is protected from the heat of the area. The uneven land is also adapted to the needs in order to prevent damaging the good quality of the grapes. The installations are designed by the winery staff, trying to combine the most modern technologies with the traditional and familiar winemaking processes. They are provided with authomatic systems which can obtain all the information to have traceability of the whole bottling process -not only elaboration but also internal changes- from the vineyards to the customers.

Full bodied, but the acid adds structure & lift.

Deep color, berry, spice & jammy. A nice somewhat full rich wine, good structure and well balace between tanins, fruit & oak. Nose is rich, earthy and plaseant finish.

Drank as a glass after-dinner. We loved this wine, deep, full body fruit forward with plum and currant, oak notes and very balanced. Nose is rich, pleasantly earthy and berry fruit. We'll get more!

This polished red shows black cherry licorice mineral and tobacco notes harmonious and deep supported by firm tannins. Medium-bodied well-integrated and stylish. Drink now through 2012. 5000 cases made. WS.

A wine with rich color, abundant ripe fruit aromas, and a long, spicy, well-balanced finish.

(100% monastrell) Opaque purple. Blueberry, boysenberry and smoky Indian spices on the nose, with a sexy floral quality coming on with air. Juicy, sweet dark berry flavors are framed by velvety tannins and enlivened by zesty minerality. Gains depth and fleshiness with air, finishing on a strong boysenberry note, with excellent sappy persistence. This is delicious right now.
