Dark, earthy red. Backdrop of dark, woody notes with underpinning of subtle blackcurrant, spicy pepper notes. Undernotes of mint and minerally tones. Soft, rounded tannins. 87.

    Still a bit tight upon opening, nose is muted. Flavors burst immediately however on tasting. Blackberry, slight oak, a little leather, finishing with moderate tannins but easy. Nice winter wine maybe best drunk on its own or with a hearty beef stew. I think this can still develope for a few years.

    Fantastic wine. Full balance of fruit and peppery characteristics. Somewhat earthy, full bodied with some structure and medium finish with strong tannins at the end palate.

    The 2004 Hecula is a single vineyard selection of 100% Monastrell, 50% tank aged and 50% aged in French oak. It is slightly less ebullient but more serious than its younger sibling. Exhibiting aromas of toasty black fruits with milk chocolate in the ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Yecla in Spain. 2004 Castano Hecula 750ml
