Bodegas Hijos de Juan Gil Juan Gil 18 Meses 2011 Jumilla, Spain
60% Monastrell(Mourvedre), 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah
This Juan Gil 18 Meses offers dark cherry color with blackberry, pepper and hint of vanilla aroma. It has silky texture but some smoky sweet dark chocolate last-long flavor. I picked this wine at Los Angeles Wine Co. for $28.
What is Monastrell? I found out this grape is known as Mourvedre. I found a great article about Mourvedre at Wine Folly.
