Note of dark plum, berry, and the elegant flavor shows this wine is not the grade of under $10, but it is. This wine has not ripped not extracted yet, and tannin is bit strong(of course it is , 2007 vintage) I felt this wine need to be decanted and after do that the balanced was improved and it becomes very clear but still remain in well structured flavor. This is good mid-full bodied daily wine. However, right after the decanting, it was good but after for an hour, the flavor is gone and it becomes just like red water. I originally gave 3 glasses for the wine, I need to reduce the glass to "two" to this wine after an hour from decant. Do not decant this wine.

Inky black garnet, almost black; earthy black fruit with pleasant nuances of toast and coffee. Ripe and full berry fruit flavor, tart and softly tannic. Good fruit, good structure, seems ageworthy - remarkable value.

This substantial blend of 85% Monastrell (Mourvèdre) and 15% Syrah experienced malolactic fermentation in new French and American oak, followed by four months of cask aging. Boasting a dense ruby/purple color as well as sweet blackberry fruit, low acidity, and chewy ripeness, it will provide an attractive mouthful of red wine over the next 2-3 years.

Good medium ruby-red. Blackberry, game and licorice on the nose. Superripe and full in the mouth, with sweet flavors of medicinal black cherry and crushed berries. Offers rare intensity and creaminess for a red wine in this price range. Finishes with big, ripe tannins and noteworthy persistence.

Inky purple. Deep, smoky cassis and blueberry aromas, with complicating notes of tobacco and musky herbs. Powerful dark berry flavors are youthfully chewy and tannic, with bright acidity adding snap. Finishes with strong grip and very good persistence. For this price, this is serious stuff.

Bright, saturated ruby. Slightly rustic, candied aromas of dark berries, leather and tree bark; suggestion of carbonic maceration. Juicy, vinous and bright, but on the lean side, with a whiff of the barnyard. Tannins are a bit dry.

Muscular, with bottom notes of plum, prune and earth, yet remains fresh through the finish. Needs food but has character. Best from 2004 through 2008.

A great value, the 2002 Casa Castillo is a blend of 85% Monastrell and 15% Syrah aged completely in French and American oak for four months before bottling. It offers loads of blue and blackberry fruit, a hint of licorice, medium body, and fine purity as well as density. This mouthfilling red should be consumed over the next 2-3 years.
