Dark blood rose in color showing big black cherry notes with hints of baking spice. Although, I have a strange feeling that this wine is much like a clown car, where if you wait long enough, once th door opens, not just one clown (or flavor, in this sense) comes bounding out of the car, but dozens of aromas. In the mouth, the wine is thick and dense, showing straight-forward flavors of red black pepper, black cherry, prune and slate. Think big when you think of this wine, and while you're at it, plan on red meat or duck. You'll want something a little sweet and juicy to balance the big mineral overtones of the wine.

Coppery and raw meat on the nose. Certainly has that blood and spice element that Mourvedre can hold. A fun and inexpensive introduction to a varietal that is often times blended away.

Good value everyday wine for someone looking off the beaten path of Merlot and Cabs. Peppery with black fruit and supporting tannins. Goes with with grilled beef.

Killer quaffing wine. Lots of vanilla on the finish. Excellent value.

Intensive purpurrote Farbe, in der Nase sehr komplex, Aromen nach Brom-, und Heidelbeeren sowie leicht mineralische Noten. Am Gaumen körperreich, fruchtig, ausgewogen, festes und reifes Tannin, langanhaltender Abgang.

Winemaker's Notes:

APPEARANCE: Cherry red, medium colour intensity and bright. NOSE: Elegant and subtle. Black fruits (plum), well-integrated spicy notes. PALATE: Smooth at the beginning, medium structure, non-ridged, well-balanced, with outstanding acidity and tannins but very well integrated. Winery

<p>Located in Southeastern Spain, Bodegas Castano is well known for their developments using varietals indigenous to the region. Their vineyards span over 500 hectares throughout DO Yecla.</p>
