Natalie's Score: 87/100

Full-bodied with tart cherry and cranberry. Lots of mocha, carraway and dark chocolate notes from generous oak aging. Pierre Castel bred this grape by crossing the century-old French grape Cinsault with a native North American from the Vitus Rupestris family. Castel is little known because of its early bud break and is susceptible to late spring frosts. It also ripens early to mid-season and develops a deep purple colour.
