Casa Castillo Pie Franco 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Pie Franco was aged for 19 months in 500-liter barrels. It’s quite smoky and feels fresh but might lack the structure and power of the 2006 (my benchmark for Pie Franco) but it’s still true Monastrell and true Jumilla. With toasty sesame seeds, supple, mineral (saline) and finesse, maybe it should have had less time in wood, as the year produced more fragile wines. Drink 2013-2019...94" Luis Gutierrez, WA 10/13
