Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 50% Monastrell, 25% Tempranillo and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Garnet purple color with a violet rim. Mature fruit aromas of blackberry and plum with hints of vanilla, roasted coffee and balsamic. Ample mineral notes on the palate with mature tannins, sweetness, round and polished with a long finish.

About Finca Luzon:

The estate was founded by the Gil family in 1916. For almost a century now they have strived to create wines that not only reflect the terroir of Jumilla but have an intense expression of the fruit and represent a good value in the market. They have achieved this goal through meticulous vineyard management and by adopting the latest technologies of winemaking available. The winery is located west of the town of Jumilla.

The grapes are sourced from the family-owned estate of 216 acres. The estate is surrounded by small mountains, 60 miles from the Mediterranean Sea. The vineyards are at the altitude of 1,500-2,100 ft. The soils are a combination of sand and chalk covered with chalky gravel and stones. Jumilla has a continental climate due to the high altitude of the region, despite the proximity of the Mediterranean Sea; there are large fluctuations in temperature from day to night during the growing season and cold winters. Rainfall is scant.
