A hidden gem! There are so many undiscovered wines in Spain...This is one of them. Masculine, rich on the palate and very chewy!

Quite suprising spanish wine. Dark, very airomatic with tobacco, oak, leather, and mocha. Mid palate was balanced nicely and it was showing youth. This can go for another 10 years.

Smoke and oak. Dark fruits smooth finish. This wine has mellowed out. Drinking well now. Has bacbone and structure for the price. Good value

Disappointing, evern for only 12 bucks. Nasty nose - somewhat of the "dirty laundry" smell. Rough stuff

Okay. Overblown like most of the other Spanish wines I've had. Chocolate, black fruit, and alcohol. Better on day 2. Visit my website: Vinotrip

Very attractive sweet red cherry fruit gently dried in oak. This wine is enjoyable and a good value, but one does have the feeling that the fruit has been stretched to its utter limit to achieve this.

Initially somewhat less layered than in the past but seemed to improve as the night went on. Cleaner fruit this time around. Perhaps a little less interesting. Cherry, plum, raspberry and oak. A little earth coming around toward the end.

Strong pepper with a little hint of sour cherry. Also had a slight "old world" mustiness to it. Good wine for the money.

The 2006 Juan Gil is also 100% Monastrell but aged for 12 months in French and American oak. It was sourced from an estate vineyard with 45 years of age. This purple-colored wine offers superb aromatics of wood smoke, damp earth, violets, and blueberry pie. Layered, succulent, and long, it will evolve for another 2-3 years and be at its best from 2010 to 2018. Score: 91. August 2008.

Showing nice structure, not overblown. Some cedary oak tones. Smokey, dried cranberry. Roasted red fruits. Touch of alcohol, but not overbearing.

Great buy for the mony. Layers of dark fruit and spice, hint of tobacco. This is one to buy in multiples -- some for now and some to store for a few years.
