Luzon 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Graphite, licorice and espresso flavors are expressive, if a bit austere, in this lean, firm red. Notes of black cherry and mineral are fresh and focused. Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Merlot. Drink now through 2012.

A nice surprise for the price. Stood up very well in a tasting against a few bottles in the $20 range.

One of the great weaknesses of Snooth is the disaggregation of certain wines. For example, there is no point in having a separate listing/entry for each year of this Luzon. They are all alike and that is the intention of the producer.

Coming from a tiny winery in the southeastern part of Spain, this full-throttled red is mostly MourvŠdre 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.



Graphite, licorice and espresso flavors are expressive, if a bit austere, in this lean, firm red. Notes of black cherry and mineral are fresh and focused. Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Merlot. Drink now through 2012.
