PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Spain has many up-and-coming wine regions that have gained in popularity for their outstanding values, but Yecla, which is located in the northernmost part of Murcia in southeastern Spain, remains uncharted territory for many American wine drinkers, perhaps because it is overshadowed by its neighbor and rising star, the DO of Jumilla. This, of course, is great news for discerning bargain hunters!

The Castaño family is the force that changed the trajectory of Yecla's wine industry. Determined to move away from the bulk wine production model and win the region DO status, the Castaños invested heavily in replanting vineyards, upgrading their winery, and marketing. Their risky endeavor paid off; DO status was awarded, and American importer Eric Solomon took notice. He was the first major player in the industry to recognize that Yecla was a gold mine and started bringing Castaño wines to American markets, where they enjoy a cult following of budget-conscious wine lovers unwilling to sacrifice quality - just like YOU!

The "Alcaria" is a blend of monastrell (mourvèdre), syrah, and garnacha (grenache) tintorera from 20- to 50-year-old vines planted in soil composed of clay, limestone, and gravel. It is stainless steel fermented and aged for four months in a combination of French and American oak barrels. Check out the press!

91 points, Vinous:
"Vivid ruby. Vibrant, spice- and mineral-accented red and blue fruits on the perfumed nose. Shows very good energy and focus on the palate, offering appealingly sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors that deepen through the back half. Comes off lively, but there's depth here as well. Closes long and supple, with even tannins framing lingering blue fruit and spice cake notes." (3/21)
