Winemaker's Notes:

91 points and listed as a `Spanish Wine Bargain Under $20` by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate no tasting note. 90 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: `Saturated purple. Smoky raspberry and cherry on the nose with a sexy mocha quality adding complexity. Fleshy round dark fruit liqueur flavors caress rather than pummel the palate. Gentle tannins arrive late to add structure but this is all about silky juicy fruit.`

From that moment onward, Ramon did not stop making improvements. It was in the early 80s when he bought the first bottling plant. During the 90's, participation in trade fairs, tastings, and market research trips began with the full incorporation of his three sons: Ramon, Juan Pedro, and Daniel. It was during this period that the recognition and appreciation, both national and internationally, arrived. The courage and determination of a man deeply rooted began to bear fruit. The development of Bodegas Castano is unstoppable, and the improvements are never-ending. The most recent of these was completed in 2002 with the construction of state-of-the-art storage premises: completely air-conditioned, with a new cooling chamber. Read less

I bought this wine at the New Hampshire State Liquor store for $11.89 with the special promotion they had on Spanish, French and Portugese wines. This wine was a real bargain - dark purple color,various berries on the nose with a full fruit flavor in the mouth and long finish. Could taste the tannin on the back of my tongue. I would like to know if this wine can be stored and for how long. I woulden't have tried this wine if it had not been promoted as a special - 15% off a case of mix and match Spanish, French and Portugese wines. Great gift idea for Christmas!

Solanera 2005 - Castano : Solanera 2005 - Rotwein von Castano Die brilliante kischrote Farbe mit violetten Reflexen erfüllt das Glas. Ein wunderbar komplexes Bukett aus Waldfrüchten, vor allem Heidelbeeren, und Lakritz erfreuen die Nase. Am Gaumen präsentiert sich der Solanera 2005 fleischig und mit intensiven, aber dennoch feinen Aromen von schwarzen Früchten. Ein toller Rotwein mit einer angenehmen Säure und grandioser Länge.Weingut: CastanoRegion: Murcia - YeclaRebsorte: 65% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Garnacha TintoreraInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,25 g/lRestsüße: 2,25 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (10 Monate)empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CAuszeichnungen für den Castano Solanera 2005:91/100 Punkte Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate Rotwein > Spanien > Murcia
