Casa Castillo Monastrell 90rr 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The just bottled 2009 Monastrell from a superior vintage has a slightly more roasted character, greater density and richness, and exceptional length. It, too, can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years. Casa Castillo’s wines are produced entirely from estate-grown fruit...90" WA 4/10 "Outstanding on the nose, the wine delivers classy aromas of black cherry and raspberry fruits intermixed with flowers, leather, damp earth, and underbrush on the nose. While theres good fruit, this has a decidedly earthy, mineral, and almost funky undercurrent that keeps you coming back to the wine. Medium+ bodied on the palate with a silky, polished texture, impressive balance, and a clean, persistent finish...90" RR 3/11
