2002 Castano Solanera Vinas Viejas Yecla
This wine was another Binny's purchase. It came recommended and cost in the $12-$15 range. It paired well with the steak dinner we had the night we tried this wine. It was peppery with dark cherry notes and a relatively smooth finish. I'd give it a 87 (which seems to be mainly what I end up drinking. Good, not great). It's a solid middle class wine.
