    Winemaker's Notes:

    Number 29 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

    100% Monastrell.
    Bodegas Castano has long been an advocate of the Monastrell varietal in the zone and its use has increased in other bodegas as a result. Known as Mourvedre in France and other parts of the world, the varietal is perhaps best known 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.

    "The 2004 Hecula is a single vineyard selection of 100% Monastrell, 50% tank aged and 50% aged in French oak. It is slightly less ebullient but more serious than its younger sibling. Exhibiting aromas of toasty black fruits with milk chocolate in the background, this is a super-rich effort with terrific depth and concentration for its humble price. It is a remarkable value for drinking over the next few years."

    This is a smooth full-bodied wine. Hints of berry, chocolate and tobacco really come thru with every mouth full. I brought this wine to a friends house for dinner and we were all impressed. We enjoyed this wine with pork, sensational! I will definately buy more.

    Very excellent, smooth finish, great w/ stronger flavors (BBQ, aged Gouda, blue cheeses). I'm on my fifth case, and would order more except the cellar is filling...
