Winemaker's Notes

70% Monastrell Old Vines, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10%

The grapes for Alma De Luzon were carefully selected from 52-year-old ungrafted Monastrell vines from the Montesinos vineyard at 2,100 ft. in elevation and 27-year-old vines of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are from the Castillo de Luzon vineyard at 1,500 ft. in elevation. The vines are planted in very chalky, gravelly soil and yields are less than 1.6 t/acre. Hand harvesting into small boxes, choosing only perfectly healthy, ripe grapes with additional selection made in the winery using a sorting table. The grapes were fermented in stainless-steel. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in new 60% French and 40% American Bordelaise oak barrels and aged for 22 months

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Alma de Luzon (the first release of this wine) is 70% old-vine Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Syrah. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in new French and American oak where it was aged for 22 months. Dark ruby in color, it has an excellent bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, scorched earth, mineral, and blueberry compote. Slightly austere on the palate, it will need 3-5 years in the cellar to round out. It has good balance and a lengthy finish but cellaring is required. 90+"
90 Points

"Inky ruby. Brooding, oak-accented raspberry and blackberry aromas are complicated by smoky herbs and licorice. Supple in texture, with deep dark fruit liqueur flavors, supple tannins and a spicy black pepper character building with air. This needs some time to open up. 90(+?) points "

Other Red Red wines are certainly not limited to Cabernet and Pinot Noir - or even Nebbiolo and Grenache.
