Winemaker Notes

Dark cherry, intense garnet color. Spicy and intense aroma, complex aromas of candied black fruits, fine cocoa, cream timber, mineral nuances and fresh strawberries. On the Palate, tasty and meaty, ripe and sweet tannins, fresh and fruity. Complex black fruit, mineral and spicy tones, full, pleasant and persistent long finish.

Critical Acclaim

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

($67; 70% monastrell, 20% cabernet sauvignon and 10% syrah) Vivid ruby. Strongly perfumed, exotic bouquet of red and dark berries, candied plum, rose, spicecake and singed orange. Velvety in texture and seductively sweet, showing impressive depth and expansive black raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors. The bright red berry and spice flavors display excellent clarity and cling tenaciously to the finish. You could scent a room with a glass of this.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

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 Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...

View More

The [Napa Valley] and [Cabernet Sauvignon] are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
