Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: The Juan Gil estate’s sandy/chalky/rocky soil vineyards (which sit at 700 metres above sea level) and Jumilla’s dry hot weather provide the ideal setting for the cultivation of Monastrell (Mourvèdre). Aged for four months in a mix of new French and American oak barrels, this full-bodied, well-balanced wine is dark and fruity, with lovely cherry and plum notes on the nose. My note: Awesome value: stock up for your fall parties. Rich aromas of black and purple plums, and dark berries. Ultra-supple and full-bodied. Top me up!

Monastrell food pairings: rice pilaf, grilled lamb.

Vera Czerny rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby red color and beautiful aroma of dark berries and plums on the nose. This wine needs to breath a little - it will reward you with stronger flavors and aromas, so give it at least 15 minutes. Full body, greatly balanced fruity wine has velvety, almost none existent tannins. Well balanced, clean and structured,with levels of rich fruit flavors, it feels like the fruit was whipped to cover every part of your mouth. Very long finish, incredible value!

Very lovely with a rack of ribs, some curds and bread outside in the gazebo. Better value than suggested for the price.

I liked it!
