Castaño 2000 Monastrell (Yecla)

Best Buy

Monastrell, or Mourvèdre as it is more commonly known in French- and English-speaking parts of the globe, has a reputation for producing dry, tannic wines that occasionally reek of horse manure. Not so in sunny Spain, where a growing number of clean, berry-fruited offerings are turning up at bargain prices. This medium-weight Monastrell combines forward berry fruit with chocolate notes and just a hint of tree bark on the finish. Joe Czerwinski
