A crowd pleaser being full, soft, flavoursome with sweet ripe fruit. Deep black-fruits, leather complexity, inky finish. Monastrell is Mouvedre. Good value

Aromas of black fruit, leather and a little bit of powdered chalk. Refreshing acidity to this, nice dark fruit and a hefty helping of drying earth.

Had a soft fruit aroma, but it was oaky with an off mineral, almost citrus flavor on the ending. Didn't care for this much.

Let this wine breath a bit. Blueberry, blackberry and chocolate on the nose. Light with a sweet, but not overdone fruity taste. Full flavored but somewhat of a short finish. For $7.59 a good buy. Definitely a cut below other quality Spanish wines in the same price range, however (i.e. La Mano Mencia Roble 2007, comes to mind.) 86.

Nice aroma, but spicy/sour taste that is bit jarring. Probably won't buy it again.

Yummy - a little known blending grape used throughout the Rhône Valley in France is often bottled on its own in the Yecla region of Spain. Concentrated, plummy, bursting with ripe dark fruits, yet not too heavy or thick; the texture is silky on a medium-bodied frame. Wonderful complement to grilled meats and vegetables.

A perennial favorite of Robert Parkerandrsquo;s as well as the Premier staff. Smooth, supple texture and a rich mouthful of dark berries and subtle spice. Dense and juicy andmdash; and an incredible value at this price!

Bodegas Castano's unoaked 2010 Monastrell (100%) is a glass-coating opaque purple color. Asian spices, incense, black fruits and chocolate compose the nose of this juicy, fruity, plush offering. Lengthy on the palate and well-balanced, this outstanding value will provide enjoyment for another 3-4 years.

"an insane value produced from three vineyard sites ranging in age from 40-60 years. Opaque purple colored, it gives up fragrant aromas of blue fruits, plums, and prunes. Ripe, layered, and full-flavored, this hedonistic effort can be enjoyed now but will surely evolve for 2-3 years. Match it will beef and lamb."

The 2005 Monastrell is an insane value produced from three vineyard sites ranging in age from 40-60 years. Opaque purple-colored, it gives up fragrant aromas of blue fruits, plums, and prunes. Ripe, layered, and full-flavored, this hedonistic effort can be enjoyed now but will surely evolve for 2-3 years. Match it with beef and lamb.

This is a custom cuvee made for American importer Eric Solomon, so the wine sold in other markets will be different blends and/or selections. The 2004 Tinto (100% Mourvedre, or Monastrell as it is known here) reveals the amazing quality possible from Yecla, and why so many importers are flocking here to buy wine from the old vine, head-pruned Mourvedre planted in the region's stark landscape. A dense ruby color is followed by a sweet, pure nose of blueberries, raspberries, and chocolate, loads of fruit, medium body, sweet tannin, and a long, ripe finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
