2015 Juan Gil (silver label)

 
I’ve been drinking this wine for years. While some years are better than others, of course, the 2015 represents a genuine break from the past. This juice is absolutely delicious. Here’s what Luis Gutiérrez (Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate) had to say: “The 2015 Juan Gil (silver label) is their pure Monastrell aged in oak for 12 months. The profile of this wine has changed, and there is now no trace of oak; it feels a lot more focused, fresh and approachable, with berries, Mediterranean herbs and balsamic notes, quite intense. The palate is very tasty, not terribly complex, with fine tannins, good balance and freshness. Approachable and easy to drink. Bravo for the change!” Luis gave the wine a 91-point rating, which is outstanding, especially for a wine that’s available for as little as $11.89/bottle.
