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. Fine, ripe tannins, at once supple and structurally present.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Juan Gil (silver label) is their pure Monastrell aged in oak for 12 months. The profile of this wine has changed, and there is now no trace of oak; it feels a lot more focused, fresh and approachable, with berries, Mediterranean herbs and balsamic notes, quite intense. The palate is very tasty, not terribly complex, with fine tannins, good balance and freshness. Approachable and easy to drink. Bravo for the change! They produced 360,000 bottles of this wine.

VinousGlass-staining ruby. Deep-pitched black and blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of woodsmoke, incense and candied violet, and a subtle hint of vanilla emerges with air. Juicy and deeply concentrated yet lively as well, offering sweet blackberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors and a refreshing jolt of white pepper. The long, broad finish features repeating florality and rounded tannins that fold smoothly into the dark fruit.
