Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell 2016, Jumilla

Winery tasting notes:

“Powerful aromas of baked strawberry, blackberry and a hint of chocolate. Spice and cedar are layered with juicy ripe plum. Full, ripe fruit and supple tannins balanced by fresh acidity. A complex wine with great appeal, concentration and length. Deep purple/black color. Explosive aromas of ripe currant, red berries and smoked notes. Rich, powerful and voluminous on the attack, a huge mouthful of crème-de-cassis concentration, silken and juicy in the mid-palate with excellent length and persistence, and a long spicy well-balanced finish including toasted notes provided by the French wood.”

92 points, Vinous:

“Opaque ruby. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, lavender and vanilla are complemented by a smoky mineral overtone. Weighty yet energetic on the palate, offering appealingly sweet dark berry flavors along with suave floral pastille and spicecake nuances. Smooth and seamless in style, finishing with repeating spiciness, supple tannins and lingering florality. (raised in new and used French oak barrels for one year)”
