(June 12, 2015) ... I'm a fan of Juan Gil wines ... so my expectations are high when it comes to their wines ... even when it's 10 years old. This version of 'the Gil' was full of dried fruit character: namely cassis and plum, though there is an element of pruny-ness here too. There is also hints of vanilla and cedar on the long finish ... For a ten year old wine I'd have to give it a positive nod, but just barely. I warned you my bias would probably come into this.
