Casa Castillo Jumilla Monastrell 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Brilliant dark color
Raspberry and chocolate nose
Silky smooth palate
Nice finish of plum tapers off smoothly

For a bargain Spanish wine, this tastes pretty good. It's plush and smooth, which makes it easy to enjoy. I really like the texture and am constantly amazed at what can be done with the Monastrell (Mourvedre) grape in Spain. This wine cost $12. Raise a glass!
