Packed with varied and complex mineral/fruit elements expressed in a decidedly sauvage style, its extract literally clinging to the sides of the glass. Balance and complexity prevail in a generally sensational taste experience.
Blend: 96% Tempranillo, 3% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
"The 2007 Montecastro exhibits more spice and a bit more density. Savory, forward, and incipiently complex, it can be approached now but will reward another 2-3 years of cellaring. The pleasure-bent effort will be at its best from 2013 to 2022."
The Wine Advocate
"This is dark and tarry at first, with aromas of freshly laid asphalt, pepper, fine herbs, burnt toast and roasted berry. This feels racy, healthy and balanced, with a creamy quality to the palate. It tastes natural and correct, with plum, berry, vanilla and spice flavors. On the finish, it's smooth with
a strong oak-based vanilla flavor. Cellar Selection."
