Juan Gil ’18 Meses’ 2018 Blue Label
Lots of licorice and a hint of tar on the nose, the black fruit needing some time to emerge. Generous, supple tannins on the full-bodied palate, the finish fairly dry, but with some warmth from alcohol. A blend of monastrell, cabernet sauvignon and syrah. If this is your type of red, drink now. 60% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah. Mainly produced with grapes from very old Monastrell vineyars of low yield, as the Cabernet-Sauvignon and Syrah vines planted at about 700 meters of altitude, this is a very concentrated, complex and elegant wine, kept for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.
Must be ordered.
