Molino Loco Monastrell D.O. 2014 (Yecla, Spain) "...ripe cherry, earth, dried herbs..."
Molino Loco translates as 'Crazy Windmill', aptly describing the windmill that stands alone at Bodegas Castano which is known to move when there is not a breath of wind in the air. Monastrell, also known as Mourvedre (France) and Mataro (Australia), is planted widely in the Yecla, a South Easte region of Spain when the wine originates.
"Deep dark red black tinged colour with a dark red hue. Aromas of black cherries combine with some incense infusions and subtle scorched earth scents followed by spicy dried herbs. Light to medium weight with a soft, generous mid palate, ripe dark cherries intermix with earthy cedar and subtle incense infusions finishing dry and spicy. Faintly chalky but otherwise fine grained tannins. Aftertaste of spicy dark cherries, dried herbs and earthy cedar. Cellar 2-3 years." - 91 Points, Nicks
