Appearance

The wine Juan Gil Etiqueta Amarilla has an intense, bright cherry colour with a purple hue at the rim.

Nose

A nice Monastrell from Jumilla, Etiqueta Amarilla is full of intense balsamic aromas, notes of red fruit, violets, Jamaica pepper, cardamom, and some delicately sweet notes over a background reminiscent of dry herbs.  

Palate

Fleshy and bold on the palate, this young red wine from Juan Gil carries loads of red fruit, a spicy fleck coming the 4 months in oak, and some balsamic hints. The texture is silky and supple, with a refreshing acidity and a long finish.

Our personal opinion

The uncomplicated, juicy Juan Gil Etiqueta Amarilla 2018 will make a heavenly pair with scrambled eggs with bacon and cheese.
