Staff Pick Notes

Do you enjoy full-bodied red wines that are smooth, fruit forward, and complex? Do you also enjoy an amazing value? If you answered yes and yes, this is the wine for you! The Juan Gil Silver Label defines Jumilla, a hot, sunny, and dry region located in Southeastern Spain where the thick-skinned Monastrell grape thrives.

A Spanish synonym for the dark-skinned Mourvèdre grape.

These are very versatile food wines, and, at generally very modest prices, they are the perfect accompaniment to your Chinese take-out (or a heaping plate of barbeque spare ribs).
