Juan Gil, Monastrell, 2009

This spanish wine, Juan Gil 2009, made from Monastrell grapes didn't please at first. It was too sweet and gassy (yes, it felt a bit bubbly). It reminded me of the terrible Yellow Tail. However, the key difference is that a day later, this wine was actually much better. It had lost its weird bubbliness (perhaps it needed an hour or so of air to breathe) and some nice spicy pepper and oaky flavors appeared. Overall, I'm giving this wine another chance. Hopefully, another bottle will confirm my second impression and its supposed quality.
