Winemaker Notes

Shiny red cherry color of medium structure with purple reflections. Intense aromas of ripe red fruit (blueberry and raspberry). In the mouth it is silky, well structured and balanced.

Critical Acclaim

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Vivid ruby. Spicy redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by notes of dried flowers and licorice. Firm and precise in the mouth, offering lively red berry flavors and a hint of bitter cherry pit. Gains sweetness with air and finishes with very good clarity and spicy persistence. These vines are reportedly planted at almost 800 meters altitude. This is a ridiculous value.

The Wine Advocate

Bodegas Castano's 2009 Monastrell was aged for 6 months in neutral French oak. Produced entirely from estate fruit and now bottled in screw-cap for the USA market, it is a dark ruby-colored wine with a fragrant nose of underbrush, blueberry, and plum. Super-juicy on the palate and densely packed, this is a pleasure-bent effort for drinking over the next 2-3 years.
