Bodegas Castano Hecula 2015 (Spain: Yecla) (ID# 2086)

Name Bodegas Castano Hecula 2015 (ID# 2086)
Varietal Monastrell
Region Spain: Yecla
Notes "The 2015 H├ęcula is pure old-vine Monastrell from dry-farmed, head-pruned vineyards on limestone soils within their Las Gruesas and Pozuelo estates in the higher part of the Yecla appellation. Different plots are fermented differently, and the wine aged for an average of six months in barrique. The palate is polished with some fine-grained tannins." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"This juicy red offers black cherry and red plum flavors, balanced by leafy and loamy earth notes. Light tannins and orange peel acidity focus the supple texture, giving way to a refreshingly bitter finish. Drink now through 2023." (Wine Spectator)
