Casa Castillo Monastrell 2005
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $11.00
Monestrell is normally used as a blending grape, so I didn't know what to expect. It tends to be high in tannins and very tart. Lucky for us Jumilla is one of the best regions to grow this tasty grape. Ok, I will admit that at first I was not very moved. With 14% alcohol this wine can be pretty hard to balance. On that note, make sure to let it decant for around 10 minutes. This monestrell has a deep purple color to it. A nose of prune, maple and just a touch alcoholic. Once decantered the taste was excellent. Has hints of earth, beef-jerky, charcoal and black raspberry. A strong reminder of Spanish wines. Try a bottle and enjoy!
