Earthy aroma with blackberries and oak - good strawberry fruit in the body comes through after it sits for awhile. A bit harsh when you first open it - volatile acidity and young tannins. Herb and tomato notes as well; it's kind of like drinking an artisinal pizza.

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.

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!

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 regionrsquo;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 2ndash;3 years.

Bodegas Castanorsquo;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 3ndash;4 years.

Also known as Mourvedre, this grape is one part of the holy trinity that makes up Francersquo;s Rhocirc;ne wines. This juicy and lively Spanish wine exhibits flavors of blackberries, balsamic and spice. This would be delicious with spareribs or a spicy bean soup.

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. Shiny red cherry colour of medium structure with purple reflections. Intense aromas of ripe red fruit (blueberry and raspberry). In the mouth it is silky, well structured and balanced. - Winery

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