Katie M brought this to dinner - really simple, fabulous and easy to drink. Definitely worth the $9.99 price tag.
The nose has a combination of plums, berries, and cherries. Smooth and well rounded. The finish is okay. It is a good value for a casual night of chilling out.
One of my favorite wines for under $10. This is my go-to choose for a casual evening.

The current releases, all of them excellent to outstanding values, begin with the unoaked 2010 Carro, a blend of 50% Monastrell, 35% Syrah, with the balance Tempranillo and Merlot. Notes of game, underbrush, and blueberry inform the nose of this pure, spicy, pleasure-bent red. Drink it over the next 3 years.
Like the previous vintage of Carro, this full-bodied blend is based mostly on the grape Monastrell, and is loaded with rich, bright flavors of blackberry and blueberry with notions of dark chocolate. With no hard edges to be found, consider it an honor and a pleasure to drink a wine with this much going for it, especially at this price.
There are 6,000 cases of the 2004 Carro, a tank-fermented and aged, un-oaked blend of 50% Mourverde, 20% Syrah, 20% Tempranillo, and 10% Merlot. It reveals terrific fruit intensity, copious black cherries and wild mountain berries, and notions of licorice, flowers, roasted meats, and chocolate. With supple tannin, low acidity, and abundant fruit, it is a joy to drink as well as a spectacular value. Consume it over the next 12-18 months. This estate is one of the top discoveries of all my tastings.
Ruby-red. Spicy, floral aromas of bright cherry and rhubarb, complicated by minerals and pepper. Fresh red berry fruit shows very good energy and precision, with a light mineral touch on the back. This boasts impressive focus and complexity for the price.
This Spanish red is bursting with sweet red fruit. It is ripe and delicious. An everyday wine that won't break the bank.
The 2005 Carro is an unoaked blend of 50% Monastrell, 20% Tempranillo, 20% Syrah, and 10% Merlot. Medium ruby-colored, it has a lovely perfume of damp earth, pepper, cassis, and blackberry. This is followed by a sumptuous wine with layers of ripe, sweet fruit, excellent balance, and no hard edges which totally belie its ridiculously silly price point. The wine is an awesome value. I had thoughts of a higher score but readers might think I'd lost my mind. The Bellum project, in which Ole Imports is involved, started in 2002. It is dedicated to showing what can be achieved from 100% old-vine Monastrell in the up-and-coming D.O. of Yecla. It goes without saying that the price-to-quality relationship of these wines is extraordinary.
