Castell del Remei Tempranillo Blend Costers del Segre Gotim Bru 2009

Member Review by steveca:

Flavorful Spanish blend with a full bodied opening of berries and fig with a mouthfilling jammyness. Tannins are mostly integrated with just a bit of a bite on the finish. Great value from a not-so well known area of Spain. Have tried the 2008 and enjoyed that even more.

I continue to be blown away by the great values coming out of Spain, and this is one of them. Huge nose, with aromas of black fruit and spice. The fruit just explodes on the palette, with lots of vanilla, raspberry and cherry flavors. Very concentrated with a very nice long finish. At $12 this is a great value.

This is one of my favorite wines. Very subtle but bold red.

A custom cuvée fashioned for the American importer, this barrel-aged blend of 60% Tempranillo and 40% Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon, is a big, muscular, formidably endowed Spanish red. Highly extracted, thick and rich, but less than charming at present, it will undoubtedly be better with 6-9 more months of bottle age. Consume it over the following 7-8 years.

A blend of Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has seen 10 months in one-to-two year American oak casks before bottling. Vivid, aromatic purple fruit, slightly resinous overtones, good energy, and an attractive minerally edge.

There is only one word for a wine such as Castell dei Remei's 2000 Gotim Bru... awesome! This unfined/unfiltered, 12,000-case blend of 55% Tempranillo, 20% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as sumptuous aromas of cedar, black currants, licorice, scorched earth, and graphite. It is full-bodied, sweet, and rich, with fabulous purity and texture. This compelling wine will age well for a decade, although who can resist the full-bodied, intense pleasures it currently offers. Readers seeking a restrained, politically correct, wimpy wine should look elsewhere. Amazing stuff!

Deeply colored Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Aromas of strawberries, dried fruits and mineral on a slightly tight frame. Full-bodied red with lots of merlot's blue fruit characteristics.

Deep ruby. Intense dark cherry, licorice, espresso and vanilla notes on the nose, with floral and spicy elements. Quite spicy and concentrated, with intense flavors of bitter cherry, dark plum, cassis and licorice. Tangy acids provide lift, and there's an impressive penetrating quality to the dark fruit on the long finish. This is drinking beautifully right now.

Opaque ruby. Ripe, brooding kirsch and blackcurrant aromas are further deepened by licorice and espresso. A real black hole on the palate, with slowly unfolding dark fruit liqueur flavors, chewy tannins and a long, sweet, compote-like finish. This should be great with grilled or braised lamb. Very serious for this price.
