Intense deep red cherry.
The nose has rich plum and blackcurrant pastille characters, with delicate vanilla spice and cedar.
Rich, powerful and voluminous on the attack, a huge mouthful of creme-de-cassis concentration, silken and juicy in the mid-palate with excellent length and persistence. Fine, ripe tannins, at once supple and structurally present.
Grilled pork chops, rosemary rack of lamb or pork sausages.
Crafted by the respected Juan Gil winery in the Jumilla DO, the grapes come from more than 40-year-old vines grown at an altitude over 700 metres above sea level. Meticulously handpicked and vinified in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 25ºC, after finishing malolactic fermentation, wine was aged for 4 months into French and American oak barrels.
"This juicy and vibrant, summer-berry and wild-cherry nose leads to a very plush and deep-set palate with a sleek, juicy and attractive feel. So vibrant. Drink now."
"Busy, warm, open, luxurious, hedonistic, soft and more: this is Juan Gill yellow label in a nutshell. There are cherries and chocolates, baked blackcurrant, raisin, and licorice, with chalky tannins. Rustic and frankly a touch rambunctious, it is a party red par excellence best paired with meatball appetizers. Ready to drink."
20 under $20 for September 2016 "...Speaking of stuffing, there is a ton of it in the 2015 Monastrell from Juan Gil, a wine that manages to be fruity, big and oaky while retaining a great level of drinkability. Clearly, mourvedre (monastrell, in Spanish) finds a very peculiar balance on the sunny slopes of southern Spain."
Best Value "Full-bodied, juicy, savoury and delicious Spanish red wine offering great value. Loaded with dark wild blackberries, purple plums and forest-deep cherries and cedar. Decant this wine 1-2 hours for maximum pleasure. Pair with veal chops."
