Bodegas Hijos de Juan Gil Wrongo Dongo Spanish Red 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Brigh violet colour. Highly perfumed bouquet offers fresh blackberry, blueberry, potpourri and peppery spices. Pliant, medium-bodied dark berry flavours show good freshness and energy, picking up silky tannins with air. Turns tighter on the back, with the sweet dark fruit qualities echoing. This is pretty sexy stuff, especially for the price.

Juan Gil winery is located in the heart of the vineyard, in the north hillside De Cerezo which belongs to the property.

Ridiculous name, great wine. Fragrant, with smoke/oak notes and cherry/banana aromas. Plum/cherry palate with mild acidity, very soft tannins and medium body and finish. Tastes more like a Pinot Noir than the other Monastrells that I've tried.

Deep and smokey flavors of cherry and tabacco.

The color of the wine is dark but still red. The nose is meaty and smoky like a bag of peppery beef jerky. The palate is beautiful concentrated dried dark cherries and a touch of vanilla with great weight and nice structured medium tannins which finishes long. I had the wine after decanting for two hours. I suspect the wine would open up and mellow after a few short years cellared.

    Very nice affordable monastrell. It had a great smoky/bacon fat aroma and good flavors of cherry/tobacco. It does drink like a pinot.
