TN: Altos de Luzon Jumilla 2005

Color: Dark ruby, bright and clear to the rim.

Nose: Sweet black fruits and violet flowers, a wee bit of alcohol, a very little bit of mineral aroma like broken stones.

Palate: Really rich black fruit, blackberries, more mineral......like slate in the mouthfeel, acid is good (med +) but the fruit is a whopper. Tannins are assertive and medium grained and the finish is medium long (15 seconds) and kind of leaves some licorice flavor in your mouth.

Overall impression: No multi layers of complexity here as the fruit is [u]so [u]dominant. Just a great big glass of intense black fruit, that does evolve with airation and really pleases for the $$$.

Retail $15.00

This wine is a great value. It's one of those wines that I use as an example when people say there are no good cheap wines out there. There are a lot of wines that i enjoy more, but for the $, I agree Mark, this is a very good wine

I love this wine as an everyday drinker, just got a few cases not too long ago. I find that after sitting for a bit that it develops some bitter chocolate notes. Great QPR all around.
