"have had the Castano before and really enjoyed it. I am a big fan of Monastrell based wines. I had previously been seeking out 2004 El Nido Clio, a Monastrell/Cabernet blend from the Jumilla region. I had heard only good things about this wine. But, it was hard to find. Then, I recently found a bottle at a local wine store, though it was $55. I splurged and bought it, only because I really wanted to try it. Over the weekend, while traveling, I found a few more bottles, on sale at $37. I grabbed up the three they had. Parker just gave this wine a 97 rating so I am sure it is going to sell out everywhere quickly, especially at that price. And I hope to taste it soon, when the right occasion rises."
