2007 Bodegas Juan Gil Jumila

Bodegas Juan Gil Jumilas
100% Monastrell
15% alc.
Robert Parker: 91pts

Aroma: 8 Look: 7 Taste: 8

Made from 100% Monastrell grapes from 40 year old parcels, these grapes are whole-cluster macerated sur-lie for 25 days, minimizing the amount of malic acids and astringent tannins released, and then aged in French oak for 12 months. This intensely deep cherry varietal, has a beautifully robust fattiness with rustic tannins. The bouquet is laced with hints of wild blueberry pie, black pepper, a smoky gaminess and traces of earthy leather. On the palate, the smokiness and wild blue fruits are playful while a floral element of violet intoxicatingly emerges adding a further complexity to this well balanced wine.
