Dark cherry-red color. Ripe fruit, pleasant wooden notes. The wine has a complex nose, it is spiced and elegant. On the palate is rich and balanced with elegant sweet round tannins.
Enjoy with strong-flavored dishes such as "Cochinillo al horno" or "Roast suckling pig" or cheeses, such as Manchego.
"The most expensive offering is the 2010 Solanera Vinas Viejas. A blend of 65% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Garnacha Tintorera aged ten months in 80% French and 20% American oak, this is a custom cuvee assembled for Eric Solomon. From 100-year-old vines planted at the highest elevation owned by Bodegas Castano in Yecla, it exhibits notes of roasted herbs, road tar, beef stock, bouquet garni, kirsch and black currants."
