    ($45) Deep ruby. Powerfully scented nose offers raspberry, cherry, bitter chocolate, anise, suave baking spices and vanilla. Deep, highly intense red and dark berry flavors are complicated by candied licorice and cured meat. Finishes lively and precise, with good acid lift and youthful but integrated tannins. Seems even livelier than the outstanding 2004. (Classical Wines from Spain, Seattle, WA)

    Montecastro is a new estate founded in 2001. The 2005 Montecastro is 100% Tempranillo aged in barrique. Purple-colored, it has an alluring bouquet of wood smoke, toast, crushed stone, violets, black raspberry, and blackberry. This is followed by an opulent, full-flavored wine with gobs of spicy fruit, excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity, and 4-6 years of aging potential. It will be at its best between 2013 and 2025.

    Loved this one. Excellent flavor, smooth, easy to drink. Needs one or two hours minimum to open up.
