Altos De Luzón Jumilla 2006

 by Laura Hatch – October 2010

 

I love Spanish wines, and this one did not disappoint me! Rich and full-bodied, this wine has a nose that draws you in. And when you taste, your mouth is filled with deep dark fruits, coffee, and chocoloate. Mature, rich tannins. Great finish that lingers. Wine Advocate’s recommendation to drink between 2010 to 2018 is right on. For those that like their wines big and bold, this one’s for you!
