Opaque black plum hue, aromas of dark stone fruits, leather and spice, flavor notes of dark berries, dried game and leather, integrated tannins, bright acidity, with a rich mouthfeel that lingers to a moderate finish. Great Value to pair with roast meats and game dishes.

Soft ripe fruits balanced by lithe, structural-yet-refined tannins. Here and there a note of oak, woody herbs or chocolate. Tasty, engaging and with a strong backbone.

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.

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.

External Review

Begins with a lovely aroma of plums dusted with cocoa, then delivers a wallop of fruit: plums, berries and cherries. There is a delicious mineral quality that supports all the fruit, and notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, a hint of cedar and spice. Finish goes on for days, with a return of delicious plum jam. Remarkable wine for the price.

External Review

Medium ruby. Varietally accurate aromas of blackberry, licorice and tree bark. Smooth, supple and quite dry, with a dominant flavor of blackberry. A tad dry on the end, but with light tannins.

External Review

"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."

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.

External Review

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!
