Juan Gil 12 Meses 2012

An old-vine Monastrell from Bodegas Juan Gil 12 Meses

Gutsy Spanish red - all baked fruit, oak and alcohol. Not without its attractions and will surely appeal to some, but its overblown, blowsy "look-at-me" style is not for me.

It's the oneological equivalent of Peter Griffin doing sexy.

If your idea of foodie heaven is dipping a Flake into hot chocolate, this could be for you.

"Don't fancy yours much."
