Bodegas Luzon Mourvedre Blend Jumilla 2010

Member Review by r sprezzatura:

Color is a dark ruby. Mild tannins and solid acids make this a well-balanced wine. I was expecting a wine with more roughness around the edges. It was powerful, yet quite smooth. Aromas of red cherry, black berry, and pepper. Flavors of ripe berries and plums dominate. The finish was long with a hint of licorice and spice.

Color: Clear deep purple to a violet rim. Nose of dark cherry and leather with hints of chocolate-mint. Heavy bodied and a little hot on the palate. Well interrogated smooth tannin and nice acidity. Flavors of red fruit; ripe strawberries and minor herbaceous notes Summary: + great value wine and food friendly (-) minor alcohol imbalance

Wonderfully balanced wine. Big spice and fruity flavor. At $7.99 you're getting a $20 wine. I'll bet they'll jack up the price on this... buy it while it's still inexpensive.

K&L Wines is promoting this at a Trader Joe like price but disappointing. I wish Spain would stop trying to cater to new world tastes. But not many choices otherwise at this price point. Tried it to see if I should stock up as a daily wine but not worth it. If you like Syrah you would like this better than if you like Grenache (it is a Monastrell-Syrah blend). Ok for a tailgate pizza party, not for a quiet dinner indoors. I don't think it is going to get any better, so forget storing hoping for more.

A very earthy nose up front on this Mouvédre. Chalky soil and barnyard tones. Crushed red berries and some lavender tones. On the palate, it's medium bodied and flinty. Wet stone, earth and some hints of licorice are followed by dark red berry fruit. Some slight chalkiness on the finish and slight mint. Medium dryness. A rich earthiness returns on the finish and it lingers reasonably well. Well suited with food.
