Castano "Solanera" Vinas Viejas 2013

92 Wine Advocate
(7/22/2015) "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 parts in tank and the other half in French oak. The Solanera, which comes from relatively high-altitude limestone soils at 900 meters, has a dense purple color, a big sweet kiss of blueberry and blackberry fruit mixed with crushed chalk, a full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity, density and richness. The oak is well concealed by the lavish fruit-the wine just amazing. Drink it over the next 2-3 years, as these powerhouses are best consumed in their exuberant and extroverted youth."

90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(9/2015) "Deep ruby. Vibrant, sharply focused and complex on the nose, displaying fresh red berries, cherry pits, Asian spices and incense. The palate is juicy and taut with bitter cherry and redcurrant flavors and a sexy floral pastille nuance. Closes silky and gently sweet, with resonating floral and spice notes. This vibrant, insanely inexpensive wine was made entirely in stainless steel, with one-third whole clusters."
