    Winemaker's Notes:

    Number 34 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

    "... a beautiful blend of 75% Mourvedre and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache... possesses purity, suppleness, and balance. It is another example of why Spain is beating virtually every other viticultural area in the world when it comes to high quality wines that sell for a song."
    -Wine Advocate

    Located in Southeastern Spain, the "lost" region of Yecla lies to the east of Jumilla and to the west of Alicante. Fortunately, this region was spared much of the wrath of the phyloxera plague, and many ungrafted and extremely old vines remain. The region's progressive leader Bodegas Castano has long been an advocate of the Monastrell varietal-also known as Mourvedre. The varietal is best regarded for its influence on the wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape where the terroir and climate is not dissimilar to that of Yecla with both benefiting from a very warm, Mediterranean climate with warm days and nights.

    We have had this wine, several vintages, many times and it is always very good. We first had this at a restaurant for our anniversary with steaks and it was very good. I have also had it with hamburgers and grilled steaks at home.
