I’m back with another pick that I thought I hadn’t yet blogged but I wrote about the 2003 vintage for WBW 35. Bodegas Castano, "Hecula", Monastrell, Yecla 2004 ($14) - Very dark purple-black with aromas of blackberry, bacon, licorice and vanilla. Ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors with medium firm tannins, good acidity and a nice minerality on the finish. 14.5% ABV Synthetic cork closure Score: 89
