May 28, 2014 - Consistent with previous notes. Full bodied, pleasant and still youthful. Should try not to drink my last bottle before 2016.

September 10, 2013 - See previous notes. I can add some licorice and leather. Still youthful. Keeping this until 2017 will not be any problem.1 person found this helpful Comment
May 5, 2013 - Nose: mint, chocolate, prune
Taste: over the hill, prunes and high alcohol, should have drank some time ago

March 16, 2013 - Liked this better then the last bottle, seemed to be more balanced, the green pepper faded and it was more ripe fruit. Even better on 2nd day.

February 22, 2013 - Last one of a case, and still tasting great. Less powerful out of the box than prior bottles, but the flavor profile remains the same. Sad that it's the last one, especially because the '08 wasn't nearly as good. Haven't tried any newer vintages.

(Bodegas Juan Gil, Jumilla) Bodegas Juan Gil, established in 1916 in the southeastern Spanish state of Murcia, is run today by the founder’s great-grandchildren. This wine is 100% Monastrell (Mourvèdre) from 40-year-old vines. Deep ruby with pink-purple edges and slow-staining tears, it offers a nose of dark-berry compote and sweet spices. The palate is rich and full, with flavors of black cherry, plum, and white pepper topped off with a kiss of cedar smoke. Try it with burgers, Korean short ribs, bittersweet chocolate, or all by itself.
