Some serious fruit for the price. Fab mix of sharp berry fruit and a hint of earth. Rocked with some grilling action. Read more

Off balance on finish. Not quite sure why. Pass even for a great price. Very dry. Fruit on attack, but finish is disapointing. Read more

This is a wonderful wine for the price. Very fruit forward with bright red lush fruits followed by tobacco and spice. This wine does not have a long finish but has a smooth velvety mouth feel and is very easy to drink. I am entirely impressed by this bottle at the $8 I bought it for and will buy more.

    Wine Enthusiast's #1 value wine of 2008 and 90 points`Truly captivating wine for under $10? Yes, Luzóns Monastrell-Syrah blend is exactly that. It delivers huge plum and spice notes, with tobacco, herbs and smoked meat working their way into the game. Remains powerfully fruity and spicy in the mouth, with a long, minty, medicinal finish. Competes with thousands of wines priced higher. Overdelivers by a lot!` Parker's Wine Advocate: The 2007 Luzon is 65% Monastrell and 35% Syrah. Purple-colored, it exhibits a bouquet of spice box, violets, and blueberry. On the palate this smooth-textured wine offers generous savory fruit, good balance, and a pure finish.` Wine Spectator: `Smoky and inky notes, along with licorice, frame flavors of cassis, mineral and game in this firm, juicy red, which is focused and expressive.`

    a great wine for the price. $8.99 @wine.com. My preference, serve cool (i.e. I put it in the freezer for 15 minutes from my 67 degree cellar). It was a great accompaniment with grilled burgers. I look forward to opening another bottle soon.

    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.
