Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Jumilla Albacea 2003

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The cute packaging and name of the Wrongo Dongo are clearly meant for the American marketplace. This solid effort represents a good value. Produced from 100% Monastrell, it is a fruit-driven, easy-going red to consume during its first year or so of life.

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

This chewy red offers juicy cherry and plum flavors against a backdrop of game and chocolate notes. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated, the finish long and peppery. Drink now through 2007.

Hmmmmmhellip; you may be thinking that is one unique name, but it fits this unique red well. Chock full of bright, ripe raspberry and red fruit, with hints of peppercorn and black olives. Juicy and bright, this spicy little number will be your grillrsquo;s best friend, as it is perfect for your favorite barbecued treats. So next time you are in Premier tell them ldquo;Wrongo Dongordquo; sent you.
