    Winemaker's Notes:

    Solenara is a special cuvée that includes fruit from Castaño's oldest Monastrell blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet). It is aged in French oak for close to a year (only 20% of which is new) before being bottled without fining or filtration.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Solanera is a blend of 60% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Garnacha Tintorera (aka Alicante Bouschet) raised in 500-liter French oak. Dark ruby-colored with a brooding, smoky black and blue fruit bouquet, on the palate it is dense, rich, and mouth-filling. This outstanding value over-delivers in a big way.

    Opaque purple. Powerful, seductively perfumed bouquet displays scents of blackberry, blueberry, dried flowers, incense and minerals. Deep but lively, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a sexy violet pastille quality. Supple tannins gain strength with air and add grip to an impressively sweet, persistent finish. Very energetic and delicious right now.
