Bodegas Juan Gil 18 meses Jumilla Monastrell Blend 2012

My rating 93 points.
A great Spanish blend of 60% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

On the Nose, blackberries, blueberries, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, wood, wet stones, fresh flowers, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant with long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, blueberries, figs, alcohol, black currants, vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee, Carmel and peppercorn.

Long finish with soft round tannins.

Beautiful, complex red blend, Still young, but is already experiencing wonderful attributes.

Each varietal was fermented individually in small barrels, then followed by malolactic fermentation in new French and American oak barrels. Aged for 18 months, then blended and let rest for an additional month.

15.5% Alcohol by volume.
