Casa Castillo 2005 Jumilla Monastrell

Medium purple color, clear with red glints.

Plum / prune / black cherry smell, some leather. Some oak, but quite restrained, perhaps not primarily new barrels.

Roast beef and plum flavors, some black cherry and some oak. Tannic, with warm alcohol in the finish.

The next day it's much the same.

I'd buy this again for $10.99. This is a very nice wine and a hard-to-beat value.
