Altos de Luzon Jumilla 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Score: 91 Points (Stephen Tanzer) Tasting Notes: Glass-staining ruby. Cherry-cola and blackberry on the nose, with sexy vanillin oak and baking spice accents. Pliant dark berry flavors stain the palate , with firming dusty tannins absorbed by the fruit on the broad, sweet, long finish. I find the oak here (all new, one-third of it American) to be complementary to the lush fruit but imagine that those with old-school palates will disagree. 50% monastrell and 25% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo.

This was a good Jumilla to try out as I attempt to expand our palates.

The results of this struggle between vine and nature is a wine with tremendous saturation of color, round rich flavors of ripe plums, blackberries and cassis, balanced with notes of warm spices. The integrated tannins and the long, well developed finish are the culmination of gifted winemaking and 12 months of careful aging in French and American barrels.
