The nose finds dark berry, pepper and a hint of tarragon. The taste had blacberry, plum, and pepper with a lingering finish of tobacco. The acid/tannin balance was very good with a well defines alcohol ring (14%). This wine was rated 91 ptsand I agree. This is the "little brother" . I have the big brother and can hardly wait, it's rated 94 pts. At it's price point of $11 this is a steal. Bravo to the Castano family and Spain

What a personal treat, Paul found a wine from California with my last name. And what a find; small bottling (187 cs.), great nose blueberry and dark fruit, slight muskiness, but the taste was all dark berries with a hint of coffee and exceptionally balanced acid and tannins. The Toby family does itself proud with this one, I only hope I'm related because they aren't easy to find.

Strong effort. Plenty of extraction here, both the fruit and tannins accent in a large way. The acidity is a tad out of balance, but do NOT let this deter you - especially with a steak. Great aftertaste - better than expected that's for sure. Drink now - Paul

Crisp, clean and refreshing. On the nose and palate fresh lemon, green pear, grapefruit and honeydew melon, a little dry but, great acidity and very juicy. The finish was wonderful, all flavors and acidity came to a smooth lasting finish riding on a soft light sweet note of white peach.

Black juice in the glass with a defined separation ring. Good legs and an extemely aromatic nose of blackberry, dark cherry, tons of pepper, violets and purple pansy with strong chocolate notes. Chewy medium tannins blend with bright acidity to lend to a long aftertaste that is both juicy and fruity. Excellent wine - drink now - Paul

Not quite the big '07 but never the less this is consistently outstanding syrah made by a winemaker that knows this site. Big blueberries, vanilla, gamey notes pepper and purple floral notes lead to the rich tannic structure. Chewy and dense this is not for the faint of heart. Generous acidity balances the aftertaste that lingers for a long time. Went perfectly with the buffalo burgers we had Saturday night. Drink now - Paul
