92 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"There are 5,000 cases of this remarkable value, another stunning example of the astonishing palate of Eric Solomon and his ability to ferret out exceptional wines at such ridiculously low prices that most consumers will never guess how good they are based on the price alone. Composed of 66% Monastrell, 19% Garnacha and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for one year in both new and 2-year-old French oak, it displays an inky/purple color along with notes of road tar, melted asphalt, blackberry liqueur, camphor, graphite and forest floor. The wine is complex, full-bodied, rich and intense with terrific purity and wonderful overall balance. It is one more example of a wine that completely over-delivers. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years." - (06/12)

"Lush and exuberantly ripe, this wine develops in the glass, gaining notes of spice and fresher fruit. It's a tight web of tannins, completely filling the mouth with their energy and power. A wine to cellar for five years or more." (10/12)
"This wine's name is derived from the valley where the winery and surrounding vineyard area is called Puerto, which in Spanish means a
"natural passage or corridor in between mountains."
"The farming practice is sustainable. The age of vines is 15-30 years. Aging is done for 12 months in new and second-filling French oak barrels
with medium toast and from different providers to create more complexity of aromas and flavors." - Importer
"The Castano family, continuing their crusade and advocacy for the Monastrell grape, developed this project in the D.O. Alicante in 2003. They acquired and revamped some old vineyards located in the foothills of the Sierra Salinas mountains - between the provinces of Murcia and Alicante - at about 650 meters above sea level The winery is a state of the art, three level gravity flow facility located right in the middle of the vineyards with an underground barrel aging room."
"The estate is 92 hectares of land where almond and olive trees share the land with the vineyards. At present, there are 52 hectares of old bush vines of Monastrell, the indigenous Mediterranean variety, planted around 1970. The rest is devoted to vineyards are planted with other varieties in irrigated trellis, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha Tintorera and Syrah." - Importer
