2001 Finca Luzon ALTOS DE LUZON (Jumilla, Spain)
(Truncated, non-scored notes from memory). This was outstanding. 50% Monastrell, 25% Tempranillo, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Inky black ruby color. Big, rich nose of chocolate, vanilla, blueberry liqueur, and earth. Massive, concentrated, yet soft on the palate. Reminded me of a mature high-end Petite Sirah from Northern California. Was $14.99 at Table & Vine (Big Y Liquors) in Northampton, MA.
