This is a small region within the Murcia province surrounded by Jumilla, Almansa and Alicante (of the Comunidad de Valenciana region). The wines are labeled and districted according to the quality of the grapes: Grapes from Yecla Campo Arriba are considered the best quality since the vines tend to be older. Yecla Campo Abajo, is considered inferior, but is nonetheless an enjoyable wine to sip on. 
 
The climate is Mediterranean shifting inland to continental, mostly very hot and dry. Monastrell (Mourvedre) is best suited for plantings under these conditions, with Garnacha, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah used in blends. Young wines are often made in the carbonic maceration style, like Beaujolais Nouveau. But fine barrel-aged wines, especially from the Arriba level grapes, can be found. 
 
White wines are made from Airen and Macabeo (Viura).

  • Vinos Sin-Ley Monastrell Yecla M5 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A solid entry-level red with good fruit on the nose, great balance and mouthfeel; tannins are firm and quite well-rounded. Color is jewel-like, letting some light through at the edge. Not a huge wine, but very well done and approachable. Read More

  • Castano Solanera Monastrell Cabernet Yecla 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Two days vacu-corked in the fridge and this wine became much smoother and better integrated with incredibly deep rich fruit and a better nose and heavier body. Balance favors the fruit for sure. More obvious chocolate and spice. Rustic, not elegant wine but super tasty and rich without being sweet. I'm guessing the monastrell, to a lesser ex... Read More

  • Castano Solanera Monastrell Cabernet Yecla 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Decanted 0 to 30 mins. Rustic, big, and somewhat complex. I think the cab sauv and monastrell and alicante mix in an odd way - a bit more noise than harmony, but not unpleasant. Wine reminds me of a French "Sud" wine only with bigger fruit. Nose of powdery cocoa, earth, and minty herb (or forest floor) with hints of spice and oak. On the at... Read More
