Bodegas Castano Hecula Yecla (Spain) 2005 Monastrell (Mourvèdre) Revisited (4 1/2 years later), $10.19, 87+ points, appeared a rainbow of red colors ending rosewood red with a clear wine ring.
Aromas of licorice, coffee, plum, and with a tenuous brine note were okay.
Medium-plus body carried fair acidity, mellow tannin, and flavors reflective of the aromas.
Finished fair on earthy truffle notes, a hint of tobacco, and a noticeable 14.5% alcohol.
