Dark berries, smoky spices. Great flavors.
External Reviews for Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Jumilla Silver Label
On the nose it has powerful aromas of red berries, toasted and smoked notes from their aging in the oak barriques. It has good structure with ripe and sweet tannins. In the mouth it is very long, and with a perfect balance between fruit, alcohol and the oak tones, which make it very pleasant and easy to drink.
Winemaker's Notes - We selected the Monastrell grapes for this wine from 40-year old parcels in our estate vineyards. Here shallow, chalky soils on a bed of limestone and rock, combined with an arid climate, produce the low yields required for wine of this complexity. The sum of the climate, soil, and vinification is a wine with rich color, abundant ripe fruit aromas, and a long, spicy, well-balanced finish.
Sweet spices and dark cherries with full bodied flavor usually reserved for wines twice the price; great with red meats. Grapes used for this wine come from old vineyards (average of forty years) from the northeast of Jumilla, placed at 700 metres high
Deep, bright ruby. Aromas of black raspberry, cola, oak spices and black tea. Musky and penetrating, offering spicy red and dark berry flavors that show a suave blend of richness and vivacity. Fine-grained tannins add grip to the long, smoky finish.

The 2009 Juan Gil delivers greater aromatic complexity, sweeter, riper fruit, and a bit more power (at the expense of some subtlety). It is a pleasure-bent offering that can be enjoyed now and over the next 6andndash;8 years.
