90 Points - [Refers to 2010 vintange] - "Deep, bright ruby. Aromas of black raspberry, cola, oak spices and black tea. Musky and penetrating, offering spicy red and dark berry flavors that show a suave blend of richness and vivacity. Fine-grained tannins add grip to the long, smoky finish." -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

COMPOSITION: 100% Monastrell

TASTING NOTES:
89 Points - [Refers to 2009 vintage] - "The 2009 Juan Gil delivers greater aromatic complexity, sweeter, riper fruit, and a bit more power (at the expense of some subtlety). It is a pleasure-bent offering that can be enjoyed now and over the next 6-8 years." -The Wine Advocate

90 Points - [Refers to 2009 vintage] - "Vivid ruby. An expressive, mineral-accented bouquet displays blackberry, cherry cola and smoked meat, with suave floral and spice qualities that gain strength with aeration. Juicy and nicely focused, with precise dark berry flavors and silken texture. The spice and smoke notes linger on a long, sappy finish. This will benefit from a bit more bottle age or a little air." -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
The vineyards, located at an elevation of 1,050 ft., are comprised of the famous chalky soil called Albariza and the 40-year-old vines are trained in the goblet system and yield 1.25 t/acre (3 t/ha).

The grapes were hand-harvested and dried on mats in the sun. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel and is arrested by the light addition of wine spirits. It is then aged for 6 months in traditional American oak botas of 500l (133 gal.).
