The 2007 Juan Gil Silver Label, which is made of 100% Monastrell aged in French oak for 12 months, has a medium body that is FRUITY to integrated and has inviting aromas of prune, caramel, cut hay and some coconut smoothness. Tannins are refined (decant for 15 to 30 min) and the finish is medium and a bit chalky. Surprisingly, this wine has 15% alcohol, which I would have not guessed, as the flavour intensity, acidity and tannins are nicely balanced. It can be enjoyed now, though would benefit from cellaring for couple of years and can be easily aged for another 10+ years. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts - a recommended buy. Tasted Nov/10.
