Bodegas Juan Gil Silver Label
Recommended by: Drew Hendricks, master sommelier, vice president, wine divisions, Standard Beverage
Tastes like: “Deep purple almost black color suggests a rich wine. Intense and rich aromas of cocoa, cinnamon and blackberries suggest a complex wine. A rich core of blue fruit with a racy undertone of acidity proves this is a delicious wine. This wine is balanced, fresh and rich with fruit with a long finish.”

Pairs well with: “Rich, well-marbled red meat cuts such as rib eye or braised meats such as short ribs.”
Comments: “Made from 100 percent Monastrell (Mouvedre), this wine comes from old vines from the Jumilla regions in Spain. The chalky, limestone soil provides this wine with bracing acidity, while the intense climate ripens the grapes to make the wine flavorful. This wine spends 12 months in French oak to round out the flavors.”
