70% Monastrell, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon & 15% Grenache
92/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2013 Vintage)
"Even better is the 2013 Solanera is a “Vinas Viejas” that differs from the Castano (100% Monastrell), as this blend is 70% Monastrell, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15 % Grenache, aged 10 months in French and American oak. Another difference from the Hecula is that it was aged equal parts in tank and the other half in French oak. The Solanera, which comes from relatively high-altitude limestone soils at 900 meters, has a dense purple colour, a big sweet kiss of blueberry and blackberry fruit mixed with crushed chalk, a full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity, density and richness. The oak is well concealed by the lavish fruit–the wine just amazing. Drink it over the next 2-3 years, as these powerhouses are best consumed in their exuberant and extroverted youth."

Number 1 Top 10 Spanish Wines John Saker Press, The Weekender April 2017
"This old vine monastrell-dominant (70%) blend offers herby,earthy, dark fruit characters. Mouthfilling and juicy with long, elegant tannins"
