The 2008 Montecillo Reserva, aged in oak for at least 3 years, has light notes of yeasty/earthy cherry, dark chocolate and oak. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; with forward acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a medium finish. It is a food friendly wine; drink now – 2016. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 87-88 pts. Tasted Jan/14.
.
The 2007 Montecillo Reserva is a light to medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of sour cherry, creamy oak, coconut and vanilla. It has subtle to refined tannins (decant for 15 min), good acidity and a long and smooth finish. It is food friendly or can be sipped by itself; drink now – 2016. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts – well priced when on sale; recommended buy. Tasted Jan/13.

The 2009 Bodegas Castaño Hécula Monastrell, aged in oak for 6 months, is a medium bodied, fruity wine, with intense aromas of fresh dates, cranberry and oak. It has a nice food friendly acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium to long finish. It is good to drink now or can be cellared for the next 5 years – it has en evolution potential of +1 pt; as aforementioned, this is a food friendly wine. My impression: NICE, 89 pts – used to cost $15, for this price buy-by-a-case before they are all gone. Tasted Dec/12.

~~~~~ The Reds ~~~~~

The 2011 Pérez Cruz Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon has lifted aromas of stems, eucalyptus, blackcurrant and plum on the nose and palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry/dry, fruity wine; UN-balanced with forward acidity, grippy tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a medium, bitter finish. Drink this wine with food; drink now – 2016/17 (screw cap enclosure). My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 86 pts. Tasted in May/14.
