Natalie's Score: 89/100
Deal of the Century! Full-bodied, juicy, savoury and delicious. Loaded with dark wild blackberries, purple plums and forest-deep cherries and cedar. The 4 Meses translate to 4 months and correspond to how long the wine was aged in a mix of French and American oak, which imparts the wine with a toasty note. Decant this wine 1-2 hours for maximum pleasure.
Monastrell food pairings: mushroom and wild rice dishes, savoury meat stews, braised meats, fajitas.
Spectacular Spicy Wine

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This week, I opened a bottle of Juan Gil 4, 2012, from Jumilla, Spain. This opaque, dark ruby red wine has delicious aromas of ripe red cherries, red fruit and hints of oak, with a slight hint of smoke. The palate is a glorious mouthfull of ripe red fruit, oak, spicey licorice and a waft of tobacco, full-bodied and lingering on your lips like the memory of a kiss.
100% Monastrell, 15% alcohol.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Just a pup - with fruit ooooooozing out of the bottle. Black cherry, plums, briars, vanilla, crushed flowers. Paired well with pot roast. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
|Larger than life and seductively smooth with ripe cherry, kirsch, plum, vanilla and floral notes. There's a wave of acidity on the mid-palate, and lifted tangy raspberry and cherry are surfing atop it. The tannins are ripe, adding extra velvet to the mouthfeel.
