Bodegas Castano 'Solanera' Red Blend 2015
(2)
92  Jeb Dunnuck 
Wine Advocate 92 "The 2015 Solanera used to wear the ultimate Spanglish label, which said "Viñas Viejas of Monastrell" even if it was always a blend (in this vintage, the blend includes 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Garnacha Tintorera). The revamped 2015 has a completely different label that only

Bodegas Castano Monastrell 2016
(3)
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "I hadn't encountered their entry-level, young and unoaked Monastrell for a while, but I tasted the 2016 Monastrell, which fermented in stainless steel and was kept in concrete vats for four to six months. They used some 25% to 30% full clusters in the vinification, and I've never

Bodegas Castano Alcaria 2016
91  Jeb Dunnuck 
Jeb Dunnuck 91 "A custom cuvée made for importer Eric Solomon with Jean-Marc Lafage, the 2016 Alcaria is a blend of 50% Monastrell, 25% Syrah, and the balance Garnacha, brought up in a mix of French and American oak barrels. An incredible value that more than over-delivers, this deeply colored red

Bodegas Castano 'Hecula' Monastrell 2012
(6)
91  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 91 "The basic offering from proprietor Ramon Castano Santa, who owns a whopping 1,000 acres in Yecla, is the 2012 Hecula, which is sourced from a non-irrigated, single vineyard planted with 100% Monastrell. Aged in both tank and French oak, it comes from 60-80-year-old vines planted

Senorio de Barahonda 'Barrica' Monastrell/Syrah 2012
91  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 91 "The outstanding 2012 Barahonda Barrica (75% Monastrell and 25% Syrah aged six months in French oak) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of blackberries, licorice, camphor, white flowers and pepper. This ripe, medium-bodied, opulent, fleshy red should drink

Barahonda 'Carro' Monastrell/Syrah/Merlot 2014
(7)
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2014 Carro is a ridiculous value in a full-bodied, complex, rich and savory dry red wine. Dense ruby/purple with notes of blackberry and blueberry fruit, licorice and camphor, the wine is totally unoaked and naked. This is a beauty of purity and richness and just goes to show

Bodegas Castano 'Solanera' Red Blend 2013
(7)
92  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 92 " Even better is the 2013 Solanera is a “Vinas Viejas” that differs from the Castano (100% Monastrell), as this blend is 70% Monastrell, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Grenache, aged 10 months in French and American oak. Another difference from the Hecula is that it was aged equal

Gordo by CVA 2012
(5)
91  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 91 "A fabulous value from Patrick Mata, the 2012 Gordo is a blend of 70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from an organic vineyard planted in 1970. Aged three months in French oak, it showcases the brilliant quality of the Mourvèdre grape from this sunny appellation. The wine

Bodegas Castano 'Hecula' Monastrell 2015
89  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 89 "The 2015 Hécula is pure old-vine Monastrell from dry-farmed, head-pruned vineyards on limestone soils within their Las Gruesas and Pozuelo estates in the higher part of the Yecla appellation. Different plots are fermented differently, and the wine aged for an average of six months

Bodegas Castano 'Hecula' Monastrell 2013
(2)
91  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 91 "The 2013 Hecula, which comes from 60- to 80-year old non-irrigated vines planted in pure limestone soils, is a cuvée of 12,000 cases. The wine has fabulous texture, a deep ruby/purple color, plenty of chalky minerality mixed with blue and black fruits. The wine is rich,
