Bodegas Castaño Monastrell Yecla Dulce 2007
A crowd pleaser being full, soft, flavoursome with sweet ripe fruit. Deep black-fruits, leather complexity, inky finish. Monastrell is Mouvedre. Good value
Color - dark red, purple Aroma - sweet, fruits Taste - chocolate
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.
Very nice spicy wine.
Wow, I can not tell you how long it has been in my possession or how many times I have almost taken this bottle out of the "cellar" and said to myself "Nah, it is only a Spanish Red, I've got better". Wrong. INCREDIBLE RED. It is always about your mind set when it comes to enjoying wine. On January 16, 2015, my mind was in the zone. Starting tomorrow looking for more Yecla red.
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.
External Reviews for Bodegas Castaño Monastrell Yecla Dulce
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."
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.
Though it's the underdog of Rhone grapes compared with the press that Syrah/Shiraz and Grenache/Garnacha get, Mourvedre (a.k.a. Monastrell) is no weakling - and the Castaño Yecla proves it! Bright cherry red, with dense, textured, cherry flavors on the palate. A great match to simple, bistro-style fare but has enough body to hold up to hearty dishes including beef, game, and strong cheeses. Yummy!
