    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Garnet-purple, violet rim

    Aroma: Mature fruits, blackberry, plum, hints of vanilla, roasted coffee, balsamic

    Palate : Ample, mineral notes, mature tannins, sweetness, round and polished, long finish

    Critical Acclaim:

    A leader in user-friendly Monastrell from Jumilla is Luzón. Altos is the winery’s high-expression baby, and if you like a bruiser with char, toast, coffee and other nocturnal characteristics, then look no further. Dynamite in terms of ripeness, with monster black-fruit, chocolate and coffee flavors. Not for the weak.

    Glass-staining ruby. Cherry-cola and blackberry on the nose, with sexy vanillin oak and baking spice accents. Pliant dark berry flavors stain the palate , with firming dusty tannins absorbed by the fruit on the broad, sweet, long finish. I find the oak here to be complementary to the lush fruit but imagine that those with old-school palates will disagree.

    The more serious 2006 Altos de Luzon is 50% Monastrell, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Tempranillo and was aged for 12 months in new French and American oak. This purple-colored wine offers a complex aromatic array of pain grille, scorched earth, blueberry, black cherry, and violets. This leads to a full-bodied wine with layers of savory fruit, spicy flavors, outstanding depth and structure, and a lengthy finish. It will evolve for 2-3 years and be at its best from 2010 to 2018.
