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.

Dark cranberry center slowly fading out to a lighter hue. On the nose cherry and meat juice with a background aroma that I can't quite put my finger on, maybe a dark herb of some sort? Medium to high tannins with medium/light body and medium acidity. On the palate, the cherry comes out nicely with a nice mineral background. It's a nice simple wine, but I am not a big of the finish however.Maybe time will give it some softness. 3.5

The 2004 Gotim Bru is a blend of 60% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Merlot aged for 10 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it provides a fragrant nose of spice box, tobacco, blueberry, and blackberry. Firmly structured, medium to full-bodied, and layered, this ripe, tasty wine should evolve for 2-3 years but who is going to wait? It is an outstanding value.

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.

One of the great values in the marketplace, even with the frightfully weak American dollar, is the 2002 Gotim Bru, a blend of 65% Tempranillo, 20% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 11 months in one-year old French and American oak barrels. Even better news is that there are 25,000 cases in the American market. This is a custom cuvee selected and blended by importer Eric Solomon (the European Cellars name will be on the back label), so European subscribers will be confronted with a completely different wine. A dense plum/ruby color is accompanied by aromas of melted chocolate, roasted coffee beans, and plenty of sweet black cherry fruit. This dense, corpulent, earthy red possesses rich fruit, medium body, not a great deal of complexity, but a mouthfilling generosity. It will provide a lot of pleasure over the next 2-3 years.

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.

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.
