Winemaker Notes

Get this one by the case! A rich, velvety, intense mouthful of fruit and spice, this amazing Spanish red wine has got to be one of the best values in the market today. Limited availability, get some while it's still around.

"Another custom cuvée from importer Eric Solomon, this dense purple-colored 2002 reveals surprisingly sweet tannin as well as gobs of black raspberry, cranberry, and currant fruit... A wine to purchase by the case, it will last for 2-5 years."

Bodegas Castano
There are only a handful of wineries remaining in Yecla since the phyloxera plague, and they are led by the forward-thinking Bodegas Castano, which has helped to reinvigorate the winemaking in the region.

Created by Ramon Castano Santa and his 3 sons, Bodegas Castano is not nearly as old as the vines it owns. Starting quite small, the family has nurtured these old plantings and re-planted other parcels and now owns 350 hectares of some of the prime vineyard land in Yecla. Today, Daniel Castano, one of Ramon's sons, runs the winery with the help of other members of the family.

The extremely talented Mariano Lopez has taken over the winemaker reins at the Bodega, and has turned the focus toward more balanced bottlings of older vine Monastrell. Both traditional and carbonic maceration techniques are used and all wines pass through malolactic fermentation. Daniel believes that the fruit and tannin structure of the Monastrell varietal stands up well to the use of oak, and as such, many of the wines pass (in varying degrees) through a barrel regime.
