Wine: 2008 Luzón Crianza Selección 12 Meses
Region: Jumilla, SpainGrape Varieties: Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo
Obtained from: Purchased at Ultimate Wine Shop
Wino4Life Category: Everyday Wine
Aeration before tasting: Just a swirl or two, no special aeration.
Appearance: Deep purple in color with a pink rim.
Aroma: Dark fruits like black cherry, a bit of smoke and just a hint of something herbal.
The Grade: I give this one an A-. The tannins are a bit harsh at this point- but a nice full bodied red for just over 10 bucks. The mix of varietals makes for a very interesting red blend. Buy a bottle to try now, and one to try in a year or so to see the difference aging makes with wine.
