Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Jumilla Silver Label 2010
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.
A wine with rich color, abundant ripe fruit aromas, and a long, spicy, well-balanced 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.
Smoky, toasty aromas give way to cola and espresso flavors in this oaky red. There's a core of black currant fruit, but muscular tannins shut down the finish. Ambitious, but lacks balance now. Best from 2012 through 2018.
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.

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.
