All dark fruit and earthy with some sweet spice, liquorice, and floral notes; there's a little alcohol kick with a plummy, mildly tannic finish.
Juan Gil Honoro Vera Monastrell 2008, D.O., Jumilla, Spain: Vintages Wine Panel: Silver Medal: 2009 International Wine Challenge. Sourced from vines averaging 40 years of age, this Monastrell (aka Mourvèdre) greets you with an alluring deep-ruby hue. Scents of coffee and sweet spices are highlighted on the nose. Delicious fruit core – cherry, raspberry, blueberry – are nicely counterbalanced by moderate tannins. Closes with a savoury, medium-length, layered, warm finish. Great with barbecue fare. It also loves cheese. My note: Juicy, tasty, full-bodied and straight-forward. Lots of pleasure and fleshy berries and plums in every glass. Yum! 167684 13.50% XD 750 mL $11.95 Score: 87/100.
