Winemaker's Notes

50% Monastrell old vines, 25 Cabernet, 25 Tempranillo. Deep violet color. Aromas of cassis and blackcherry with smoky blackberry. Loads of black fruit with soft, chewy tannins. 
 

"The seriously endowed 2004 Altos de Luzon is a blend of 50% old vine Mourvedre (52 years) and equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo, aged 12 months in a combination of French and American oak. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by beautiful aromas of smoky licorice, black currants, cherries, and earth. Offering wonderful ripeness, an alluring texture, sweet tannin, and adequate acidity, it certainly over-delivers for its price. Drink it over the next 2-4 years."  The Wine Advocate

Style: Fruity & Smooth
Just opened today, I was expecting this wine to be somewhat over the hill at this point but was pleasantly surprised. Very dark color, nice black fruit and floral notes. The Cab really comes through even at only 25% of the blend. The mid-palate is very satisfying but isn't very long. Just the right amount of dryness. It certainly has held onto its fruit. Nice bottle.
