Juan Gil Monastrell Silver Label Jumilla 2016
92 Points! Opaque ruby. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, lavender and vanilla are complemented by a smoky mineral overtone. Weighty yet energetic on the palate, offering appealingly sweet dark berry flavors along with suave floral pastille and spicecake nuances. Smooth and seamless in style, finishing with repeating spiciness, supple tannins and lingering florality. (raised in new and used French oak barrels for one year) - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
91 Points! The 2016 Juan Gil (silver label) is pure Monastrell from old, non-irrigated vines that was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. They had to do a severe selection, as the year was quite challenging (but later 2018 was even a more difficult year); they discarded a lot of grapes, and they told me that they had never sold so much wine in bulk. That seems to have paid off, and the wine is quite harmonious and clean. It has some dusty tannins and an austere profile. The oak is very well integrated, folded into the fruit. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com
