Bodegas Hijos de Juan Giljuan Gil 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Die Aromatik im Bouquet ist verführerisch, lecker und intensiv: reife Fruchtaromen (Kirschen, Zwetschgen) und süssliche Noten von feinen, exotischen Gewürzen strömen aus dem Glas. Die samtige Textur gepaart mit der fruchtigen Struktur bieten viel und überzeugen im Gaumen. Die Frucht, die Gewürznoten und der Schmelz hinterlassen einen spannenden Sinneseindruck im Finale.

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. The processing capacity of the winery is three and a half million kg of grapes. All the buldings are air-conditioned. The aging cellar has a capacity of 3000 oak casks. The laboratory equipment is ready to carry out all the necessary quality controls to guarantee the consumers`health. Read less

Heavy and thick -- almost syrupy. Nose of pepper and blackberries. It's a little hot, but the tobacco and licorice on the finish are nice. Quite tannic.

Tannic, but balanced. pepper, blackberries, and tobacco on the palate. Heavy but rich in flavor.

Great, new-style wine for the price. Intense cherry nose. Rich mouth feel without being too heavy. Very forward jam and oak notes. Good value.

Heavy bottle warning! Spicy nose of white pepper, meat and wet wool. Spicy, still tight (decanting or letting breathe should do the trick). A very deep rich licorice wine. Hard to validate while this freshly opened, but fruit seems too restrained behind the dominant tannins and meaty flavors. After an hour the wine had opened up a little, there's more fruit, but its still a hot heavy beast.

This is a great wine that has a powerful berry burst and a very smooth finish. Different from other Spanish wines in that it's not as earthy tasting. It's rich, blackberry almost inky color to it that clings to the side of glass. Undertones and after taste are similar to the initial taste. Consistently great all the way through. I received this as a gift so my friend must really like me! I will buy this again and again.

This is a rich and meaty wine, the way I like them. Not overly tannic, well balanced.

This 100% Monastrell (a.k.a. Mourvèdre in France) bottling from the Jumilla region of Spain comes from old vines grown in chalky limestone. A rich, smoky deep red, this wine pairs perfectly with slow roasted meats on those cold winter nights.

Made of 100% Monastrell (a.k.a. Mourvèdre) in the Jumilla region of Spain, the fruit for this wine comes from old vines grown in chalky limestone. A rich, smoky, deep red, this wine pairs perfectly with slow-roasted meats.
