Castaño Monastrell Yecla 2007 - $10

I've always liked this wine, and I can usually get it at Whole Foods.

Aroma - chocolate, leather, pepper
Taste - firm tannins, slightly bitter at the end

This wine went GREAT with veggie stir fry! It rated 90 points with the Wine Advocate (Jay Miller), 90 points with Robert Parker, and 88 points with Stephen Tanzer.

Update - November 29, 2009
SD and MS came over for a glass of wine tonight, and we tried the Monastrell again.

SD - aromas of damp rag, but thought it tasted good
D - celery
me - vegetal

Interesting - we didn't have any food with this wine tonight.
