Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Juan Gil (silver label) is their pure Monastrell aged in oak for 12 months. The profile of this wine has changed, and there is now no trace of oak; it feels a lot more focused, fresh and approachable, with berries, Mediterranean herbs and balsamic notes, quite intense. The palate is very tasty, not terribly complex, with fine tannins, good balance and freshness. Approachable and easy to drink. Bravo for the change! They produced 360,000 bottles of this wine.
