Juan Gil 100 Anniversary 2013, Jumilla, Spain

My Rating 95 Points.   

Price $18.
Deep ruby in color with a purple rim.

Beautiful, fierce nose of toasted Oak, vanilla, licorice, Blackberries, figs, raisins, spices, cherry pie, earth, leather, cloves, coffee, bonfire smoke, bacon and black pepper.

Full bodied, bold, elegant, smooth and powerful with medium acidity and long legs.

Fruity on the palate and dry, with blackberries, blueberries, figs, sweet cherries, licorice, wood, tobacco, leather, earth, pencil shaving, light cloves, red pepper, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and black pepper.

A great red from Jumilla, Spain. Enjoyable to Sip on by itself or with grilled meats and BBQ.

Spicy, interesting, complex and big, (did I mention spicy?) and a Great mouthfeel too.

Needs an hour to open up, in order to showcase all it’s got, but good pretty much out of the bottle.

Thank you Anthony for sharing this wine with me. I really liked.

15.5% alcohol by volume.
