($16) Ruby-red. Powerful, strongly oak-influenced aromas of vanilla and baking spices, with notes of ripe blackberry, candied plum and boysenberry. Lush, sweet and plump, the dark berry flavors deeply tinged by vanilla, cinnamon and clove accents. Finishes on a dark berry liqueur note, with subtle tannins and very good length. Definitely for fans of the oaky type, who will love it. (Fine Estates From Spain, Dedham, MA)

Unbelievable value for the money! Drinks like a wine at 10 times the price. Wish I could find more 2004!
Altos De Luzon
tremendous wine for the price. Great with white meat fish.
60 second finish for 13 bucks!
That's it...it's got a great 60+ seconds of finish for less than 13 bucks (where I bought it anyway). It's worth about $30...
The seriously endowed 2004 Altos de Luzon is a blend of 50% old vine Mourvedre (52 years) and equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo, aged 12 months in a combination of French and American oak. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by beautiful aromas of smoky licorice, black currants, cherries, and earth. Offering wonderful ripeness, an alluring texture, sweet tannin, and adequate acidity, it certainly over-delivers for its price. Drink it over the next 2-4 years."
Spain has more acres under vine than any other country and ranks third in production behind Italy and France. Much of this output continues to be hot-country jug wine made to satisfy the everyday thirsts of the domestic and greater European markets Read More »
