750ML    
Sku: 022316

Tasting notes
Colour: Purple garnet Aroma: Powerful, ripe fruit, spices, cocoa, blackberry, plum, vanilla notes, toasted notes from new oak, complex. Palate: Smooth, gentle, gourmand, mineral, ripe tannins, good acidity with a silky texture and excellent balance.

Review
Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate on 2006 Vintage Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90 Points: "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."


Rating
2006: 91 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "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 (all new, one-third of it American) to be complementary to the lush fruit but imagine that those with old-school palates will disagree."

2006: 91 Points - Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast: "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."
