Castaño Monastrell

Castaño Monastrell 2018

Yecla, Valencia and Murcia, SpainThe Castaño family puts its heart and soul into their wines, and could probably use a helping hand given the COVID-19 challenges all across Spain. I like the fresh fruit-forward style here with earthy monastrell notes colliding with sweet berry fruits. The result is a smooth sipping barbecue red that you can serve liberally at this price. Fresh, juicy, and ready to drink; splash decant for best effect. Burgers, sausages, meatballs, lamb chops and pork all work here.Tasted: 09 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 12.49 private wine shops AB 12.00 private wine stores NB 12.00 ON 8.95 LCBO Producer: Familia CastañoDistributors: The Delf Group
