Bodegas Castano 2005 Yecla Solanera Vinas Viejas

I began by aerating this.

Opaque black/purple/red color.

Smell of oak predominates.

Oak nearly overwhelms stone fruit flavors.

The next day any charm this wine might have remains hidden.

This is a blend of 65% Monastrel (Mourvedre), 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Tintorera.

$13.49 represents no bargain. I'm displeased.
