Bodegas Casa Castillo 2010 Las Gravas
Wine Advocate 94 Rating
The 2010 Las Gravas, a blend of 70% Monastrell, 20% Syrah and 10% Garnacha aged 18 months in foudres, comes from chalky, stony soils at 750 meters altitude. This wine reveals amazing richness along with a full-bodied mouthfeel, dense blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with hints of chalk, acacia flowers, licorice and graphite, terrific body, a multilayered texture and a long finish. A prodigious offering, it represents unreal value at $25 a bottle. It should drink well for 2-3 years. Robert Parker.
