Why? (part 2)

Black as ink - a lot of pigment was extracted from the grapes - with black plums and cloves on the nose...impressively tannic mouthfeel...an obviously well made wine...14.5% alcohol - the grapes were nice and ripe...but...WHERE'S THE FRUIT???
The Juan Gil, old vine Monastrell (Mourvedre), 2005 from Jumilla in Spain is a dilemma - obviously well made, but it's just not very enjoyable to drink. Is it just closed at this point in it's development? --- I don't think so, I would guess that the fruit will never show itself.
I give it an OK, and would pass on buying any more. Why bother with something that isn't enjoyable?

Cheers!!
