One of our favorite wineries from Spain is the austere Juan Gil Family Estates. With labels like El Nido El Nido, the El Nido Clio, and 18 Meses just to name a few, these wines vintage after vintage always ooze BOLD and EXPRESSIVE flavors. While the previous wines mentioned retail easily over $32/bottle and as high as $190/bottle, if you can find them, Juan Gil has some more approachable and affordable workhorses that equally deliver on flavor. Today’s Deal is the 2013 Juan Gil “Silver Label” Monastrell from Jumilla, Spain. Value priced at $15.95/bottle but purchase six bottles or more and rake it all in at $14.95/bottle on six +!
The Juan Gil wines are some of the most unique wines in the world. This is due in large part because of their geographic location where extreme climate changes and barren soil qualities dominate the region. With vineyards perched as high as 2300 feet above sea level, these amazing grapes develop into very CONCENTRATED, COMPLEX, yet ELEGANT wines that are absolutely STUNNING!
The “Silver Label” is no different. Comprised of 100% monastrell (mourvedre), the wine FLASHES a BRIGHT PURPLE hue. With FRESH aromas of BLACKBERRIES and BLUEBERRIES complimented by VANILLA and MOCHA, you can’t help but dive in to taste what’s next. When you do, PLUSH BERRY and CANDIED BLUE FRUITS accentuate the SMOOTH yet GENTLY TANNIC finish. Overall, this is a wonderful wine not meant to be overthought or overanalyzed: the “Silver Label” is indubitably good!
If you’ve been a fan of the Juan Gil wines over the years, then you have to jump on this one too! We have FIVE cases in store (we can get more) today, so click the ORDER SILVER LABEL RED NOW button and reap the rewards of what Juan Gil Estates has to offer!
Winery Tasting Notes: “Deep purple/black color. Explosive aromas of ripe currant, red berries and smoked notes. Rich, powerful and voluminous on the attack, a huge mouthful of crème-de-cassis concentration, silken and juicy in the mid-palate with excellent length and persistence. Fine, ripe tannins, at once supple and structurally present.”
