Alma de Luzon is the flagship of Finca Luzon. The 2005 is a blend of 70% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Syrah aged for 22 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it offers up a brooding bouquet of slate/mineral, blackberry, and black cherry. With excellent volume on the palate, it has loads of sweet fruit, enough structure to evolve for 4-6 years, and a pure, smooth finish. It will be at its best from 2012 to 2025.
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.
