The Rhone Report

    February 2008, (See more on Winedoctor...) 16.5 points

    (Bodegas Castaño Hecula) Another very dark wine, although the nose here is much more restrained than the 2006 Monastrell. There is dense fruit, with a smoky intensity to it, although it has a cherry and bramble character. It starts off in a very opulent fashion, rounded and creamy, but it shows more grip through the midpalate. There is plenty of substance here, a good tannic backbone, and a nice acidic cut too. This is impressive.
