Juan Gil Blue Label Jumilla 2019

Brilliant red in the glass. A lightly roasted aroma complemented by fresh berries. Savory notes of earth and black tea balanced with a rich core of black fruits. Round tannins, good acidity.

The Monastrell vineyards used to produce this wine are situated at an elevation of 2,800 feet above sea level with an average vine age of 55 years. They are situated on chalky and sandy hillside soils with excellent drainage, allowing them to ripen in optimal conditions. The production does not exceed one ton per acre. The Cabernet and Syrah vineyards are located at 2,300 feet above sea level with an average vine age of 15 years. The fermentation is carried out separately in small open tank fermenters. The wine is then aged for 18 months in new French and American oak barrels.

Blend: 60% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Syrah

Dry-farmed, no pesticides or herbicides, hand-harvested, Vegan.

Critical Acclaim

92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

I also tested the 2019 Juan Gil (blue label), the wine is formerly known as 18 Months, the time it spends in the barrel. They use 100% new oak which is a mixture of French and American. The wine is ripe, oaky, and heady (15.5% alcohol), but I felt a change in the oak, which seemed more integrated. When I asked Miguel Gil, he told me they had changed the toast, using less toasted barrels, from medium+ to medium, and that shows in the wine. They still believe this wine should have new oak to give it aging potential. They have also introduced optical sorting of the grapes and eliminated the raisins (by shape) and the unripe grains (by color), and which adds precision and cleanliness. 30,000 bottles were produced. It was bottled in June 2021.

Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community. 

We work directly with the wineries, distilleries and breweries to maintain a personal relationship with the creators of some of our favorite products.

We want to know their stories and how they produce bottles that fit into our unique collection. We make a point to keep our selection stocked with a wide variety, offering your classic Napa icons to your natural & organic wines.

We like to think of our whiskey and spirit section as more of a library where the rarest of bottles can be found.

We look forward to helping you find your next favorite bottle!
