    As always, the 2009 edition of Juan Gil is big, rich, and loaded with fruit and earth. 100% Monastrell from 40 year-old vines growing on chalky limestone soils in Jumilla, Juan Gil spends 14 months in French oak before bottling. It’s a big, dense, sweetly-fruited wine that shows notes of black plum, blueberry, underbrush and fresh earth. A touch of minerality underneath everything gives freshness and complexity. Big wine for big food now and for a few years. "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."Wine Advocate 89 points

    Sweet only from the taste left behind afterwards. Heavier than most.
