Castano Hercula Organic Monastrell 2019, Spain

Monastrell from Spain
Review Date : 15-Feb-2021
Deep ruby-black with some density, lighter on the rim. The nose is full and robust, sweet aromas of prune, blackberries melded with an amalgam of spices, unfolding cedar and dark cocoa. Full-bodied, brisk flavours of plums, prune, blackberries have a strong core, intermix sweet oak spices and dark chocolate. The rich palate possesses ripe, grainy tannin; underlined alcohol power contributes to the weight. This is a succulent, full-bodied Monastrell, displaying ripe fruit and tannin on a robust palate. Match with barbeque lamb and beef over the next 2-3 years. Stainless steel fermented to 14.5% alc, aged 6 months in 80% French and 20% American oak. Vegan friendly, organic certified. 16.5+/20 (84 pts) Feb 2021 RRP $19.99
