Good Spanish Wine under $20: Juan Gil 2004 from Jumilla

juan gil 2004

Other spectacular find for red wine bargain hunters, you can’t miss this one. From Jumilla appellation (Jumilla DO denominacion de origen) this 2004 Juan Gil from the wine producer Bodegas Juan Gil is a great value. It is a wine with rich violet colour, abundant ripe fruit flavours, and a spicy, well-balanced finish. Better drink with roast and game, hamburgers, red grilled and barbecued meat, etc.

100% Monastrell from 45 year old vines. Deep violet. Aromas of blackcurrant, black tea, black berry, smoke. Very chewy and rich with good framing tannins and minerality. A serious effort, the 2004 Juan Gil is fashioned from 45-year-old Mourvedre vines and is aged for 12 months in American and French oak. This rich, full-bodied, inky/purple-tinged cuvee exhibits aromas of scorched earth, blueberries, licorice, and pepper, a savory, layered texture, and remarkable opulence for a Mourvedre. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. The Wine Advocate WA.91.

Average price as of today: $14

I´d love to hear from you, if you had the chance to drink this wine let me know in the comments.

I just got back from a trip to Miami, Fla. to visit friends and family. While I was there I had the opportunity to drink a couple of glasses of this wonderful wine. It impressed me enough to take a good look at the bottle. A very plain label that said Juan Gil made in spain I did not have my reading glasses with me so I was not able to read the fine print which I am sure had a lovely discription of what I was drinking. But without the fine print I can say very good, pleasant, and a wine I will drink again and share with friends. Salud!
