Luzon Verde 2008
"Purple garnet colored. Aromas that are powerful, ripe fruit, spices, cocoa, blackberry, plum, vanilla notes, toasted notes from new oak, complex. On the palate, this is smooth, gentle, gourmand, mineral, ripe tannins, good acidity with a silky texture and excellent balance. Food pairing: Steak with mushrooms, hare, partridge, lamb, smoked meats, stews and rice with meat, salmon, cod and tuna, smoked meats, eggplant with parmesan cheese, blue cheeses and cured cheese in general." -Winery
Made in Spain with 100% Monastrell grapes, this organic wine took me by surprise. Very aromatic, deep dark jam and that lovely smell of tomato vines. Dense mouth feel, and bursting berries, licorice, and chocolate. At its price point, I will be buying a case of this.
Rating 88: Complex long nose of berries and multiple aromas. Body some how not that smooth but rather lively with fruit. Try it yourself
Sweet currant nose with some light hints of smoke, pepper and black berry. The palate is lightly sweet with notes of currant and dark berries with a finish that turns to hints of hazelnut.
I liked this wine.. It has the Big Jumilla taste but good complexity good acidity adaquate tannins and a lingering finish. Huge Black Fruit and a hint of licorice. At this price point this is a wine that I would consider buying at least 6 bottles of for future evolution in the bottle.
Good red wine,smooth with steak. 3-22-2011 at home!
Smooth medium bodied wine. Didnt quite taste the fruity, vanilla tastes the wine store suggested but its definitely a good buy for the price. Easy to drink, and drinks well alone.
Very inky on the pour (it's like your pen just exploded). Strong notes of blueberry and black pepper; very jammy.
External Reviews for Luzon Verde
Attractive, full-force plum and berry aromas with a fruity, rich, concentrated palate of black fruit and plum. Smooth, nothing fancy, and always solid for those looking for a big, full-bodied wine at an affordable price. Luzon is the definition of a go-to producer.
This solid red shows typical game and licorice notes, framing black cherry and chocolate flavors over firm tannins. Finishes with a fresh herbal note. Drink now through 2014.
Medium red. Fresh strawberry and cherry aromas are clean and precise. Brisk red fruit flavors are sharply focused, with deeper espresso and bitter chocolate qualities building with air. Finishes with impressive grip and persistence, leaving a bright cherry impression. This bargain saw no oak.
Perfect picnic wine! 100% organic Montastrell (i.e. Mourvedre) that's super juicy and uncomplicated. It shows fresh raspberries and black cherries, unfettered by the heavy tannins of many red wines. Instead of a Beaujolais, why don't you give this a try?
