"The 2003 Juan Gil is more structured and powerful than its predecessor, but it may not be any better, at least over the next 12 months. Yet it still offers an incredibly impressive mouthful of wine. This dense ruby/purple-tinged 2003 offers up sweet notes of blueberries, blackberries, graphite, and wood in a smoky, rich, medium-bodied, full, fleshy style. An added attraction is the minerality that comes from these ancient vines' chalky/limestone soils. It should last 3-4 years ... at a minimum."
