Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell 2013
|Brand||Bodegas Juan Gil|
Wine EnthusiastBlack plum and boysenberry aromas come with notes of grass and latex. On the palate, this Monastrell from a cool, tough vintage is bulky, with hard tannins. Foxy, woody flavors of berry fruits are topped with clove and spice, while the finish is oaky, toasty, chocolaty and ultimately a touch bitter.
Wine SpectatorA plush texture carries ripe, sweet flavors of blackberry jam, kirsch and chocolate in this fruit-forward red. Toast and cola notes linger. Gentle tannins and balsamic acidity lend structure. The best of three bottles tasted. Drink now through 2018. 30,000 cases made.
