Bouquet is a bit off at first tasting. But different than I remember the October bottle. This bottle has sat around for a few days (didn't finish it then went out of town). Different taste, some off after taste, but not too bad. I think this wine is on the way down.

(Bodegas Castaņo Monastrell (Yecla)) A gorgeous colour to this wine, a bright and vibrant cherry red, with some density. The nose is simply bursting with ripe, chewy, juicy black cherries and other black fruits, with some root liquorice. Rich, juicy and mouthfilling on the palate, with some ripe tannins and fairly low acidity. Plenty of fruit, good extract. This is a lovely, approachable example of the grape variety, for current drinking.
