Finca Luzón Finca 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: The outstanding LUZON 2006 is a blend of 65% Monastrell (Mourvèdre) and 35% Syrah. It is a full-throttle, exuberant, dense ruby/purple-colored effort with loads of crème de cassis, licorice, truffle, and acacia flower characteristics. This exotic, deep, broad, intense red should be drunk over the next 3-4 years, although it may last longer. Age of Barrel: None Alcohol Percentage: 14 % Aging Time: None Sugar Rate: 0-5 g/l

Nose is very fruit forward, big dark berry aroma. Flavor is very big also: jammy and earthy; tannins and acidity are restrained. A wine that drinks well by itself and at $8 one of the best values for the buck.

Coming from a tiny winery in the southeastern part of Spain, this full-throttled red is mostly Mourvèdre with a tiny bit of Syrah. Spicy black plum, red currants, and licorice fill the palate, and it finishes with a warm vanilla toastiness. A great introduction to Spanish reds.
