The Castano 2003 from Spain is a Monastrell Red Yecla Wine.
It is a medium bodied wine.
I tend to buy new wines based on the distributer/importer.
This one is an Eric Solomon- European Cellars Selection.
I kinda trust some of these guys like you trust a record label to put out interesting music.
At around $8.00 it is a bargain.
The restaurant were I work when I am not tending to Montclair Concierges, Napa Valley Grille (Paramus, New Jersey) carries only American Wines(except for Champagne obviously), almost all from California so when I buy wine at retail I tend to buy selections from other countries than the US
