Harvested from 60+ year old vines and aged ten months in French oak barrels, Bodegas Castano Solanera is a custom cuvee for Eric Solomon Selections. A blend of 65% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Garnacha Tintorera.
"The 2009 Solanera is a blend of 60% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Garnacha Tintorera aged in 500-liter French oak. It is a savory, elegant, already complex offering with layered black fruits, excellent volume, and a fruit-filled finish. Drink this pleasure-bent effort over the next 4-5 years.
