The color is deep cherry with a violet rim.
On the nose, the wine displays ripe red fruit with floral tones, Mediterranean herbs and minerality.
The taste is alive with a clean taste of juicy good fruit, balanced with a good finish.
Pair with salads, mixed vegtables, roast beef, pork, chicken and grilled steak, as well as fish, rice, pasta and cheese.
"The 2009 Luzon Verde was produced from organically grown grapes and is 100% Monastrell from 15 to 35-year-old vines. Dark ruby-colored, the nose offers up earth, spice, underbrush, and blueberry. Ripe, sweetly-fruited, and firm, it will deliver pleasure over the next 4 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Inky ruby. Vibrant aromas and flavors of black raspberry, spicecake and black pepper. Very complex for the money. Brisk, focused dark fruit flavors linger on the finish, which repeats the peppery note and shows a hint of heat. This is a real value."
