C Hécula Monastrell 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Tintige Farbe mir schwarzer Mitte. Zimtkirschen und süsser Tabak in der pflaumigen Nase, auch Nelken und Heidelbeeren. Saftiger Auftakt mit reifen Tanninen und samtiger Textur, Speckpflaumen und Brombeergelee, typische Monastrell-Wärme und Lebkuchen bis ins zartcremige Finale.

From that moment onward, Ramon did not stop making improvements. It was in the early 80s when he bought the first bottling plant. During the 90's, participation in trade fairs, tastings, and market research trips began with the full incorporation of his three sons: Ramon, Juan Pedro, and Daniel. It was during this period that the recognition and appreciation, both national and internationally, arrived. The courage and determination of a man deeply rooted began to bear fruit. The development of Bodegas Castano is unstoppable, and the improvements are never-ending. The most recent of these was completed in 2002 with the construction of state-of-the-art storage premises: completely air-conditioned, with a new cooling chamber. Read less

On the scrounge during a hectically short lunch break, I came upon a perennial favorite at an unusual bargain-basement price. This above average Monastrell has an inviting deep, black robe redolent of blueberry, is well balanced on entry with some character poking through and yes - even structure for a couple more years in the cellar! Viva España! Buy by the case and seek out the even better 2009 vintage. 88 points
