Red purple with an intense violet rim. Clean, fragrant, fruity, intense smells of red and black fruits, powerful and very enjoyable. Big, smooth and warming, very fruity and well balanced acids. Mature tannins. Pairs well with roast sirloin steak, stewed meat, roast chicken, rice dishes, stews, vegetables and goat cured and semi cured cheese.
Blend: 70% Monastrell and 30% Syrah
"The 2010 Luzon is a blend of 70% Monastrell and 30% Syrah that was tank fermented and aged. It offers up an herbaceous nose with notes of sage, thyme, blueberry, and blackberry in a jammy, ripe style. It is an excellent value for drinking over the next 5 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Full ruby. Cherry, cassis, licorice and a faint smokiness on the nose. Juicy, intensely flavored and youthfully taut, with dense black and blue fruit flavors and a hint of candied licorice. Very nicely concentrated but a bit tough on the finish, perhaps due to its youth.
