Three and a half glasses
Smooth, hint of sweet, still dry enough to enjoy. Nose opened up after extended stay. My rating 86.
Slight tobacco and leather on the nose that is toned down by a fruity edge. Taking the first sip, it is very dark fruit, a little spicy. While it is dry, it is smooth. My mouth is not dried out and the finish leaves me ready for the next drink.
Nice wine. Was not sure what to expect. A little difficult to get a feel but I would agree with the other comments. Body was medium and gave me a slight pucker. Drinkable but not something I would rush out and stock up.
An amazingly good value wine. Mr Parker got it right giving it 90 points. Good notes of blueberry, plum, cherry and vanilla. Wonderful long and smooth finish. Fantastic with a good steak and will age well for many years to come. Truly a great value drinkable wine. Will be buying another 12 bottles for my cellar.
First sip is a bit spicy, light blackberry. nice organic wine for under $12.

(100% monastrell): Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of red berries and spices, with a subtle note of violet. Spicy and energetic on the palate, offering red berry and cracked pepper flavors that gain weight and sweetness with air. Clean and nervy on the finish, which shows good clarity and a hint of bitter cherry. This is an excellent value. Bodegas Luzon's unoaked 2010 Luzon Verde was produced with organically grown grapes from 100% Monastrell. It is a briery, herbaceous wine with ample blue fruit, good volume, and plenty of flavor.

Sourced from two unique vineyards, this full-bodied blend of Monastrell, Cabernet and Tempranillo has tremendous saturation of color, round rich flavors of ripe plums, blackberries and cassis with balanced notes of warm spices. The integrated tannins and long, well developed finish are the culmination of gifted winemaking and 12 months of careful aging in French and American barrels.
The 2009 Altos de Luzon is a blend of 35- to 45-year-old Monastrell, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards planted at 650 meters altitude fermented with wild yeast, and aged for 12 months in barrel. It’s a minty blend, showing some age, tertiary notes of leather, cedar wood and a polished palate. The Cabernet marks the blend, giving the impression more of a Mediterranean Bordeaux, but unfortunately the varnished oak character of the wine stays at the forefront. 150.000 bottles produced. Drink 2013–2015.
The 2009 Luzon Verde was produced from organically grown grapes and is 100% Monastrell from 15- to 35-year-old vines. Dark ruby-colored, the nose offers up earth, spice, underbrush, and blueberry. Ripe, sweetly-fruited, and firm, it will deliver pleasure over the next 4 years. (100% organically grown monastrell) Inky ruby. Vibrant aromas and flavors of black raspberry, spicecake and black pepper. Very complex for the money. Brisk, focused dark fruit flavors linger on the finish, which repeats the peppery note and shows a hint of heat. This is a real value.
