This week’s WOW is a luscious red from Jumilla, a wine region that excels in the production of old-vine Monastrell not far from the Mediterranean in the southeast of Spain. The warm days and cool nights provide structure to the grapes which produces wines of intense color and rich flavor.
2014 Bodegas Luzón, Finca Luzón
The Finca Luzon is highly concentrated, dark in ruby color and rich in fruit flavors. It’s full-bodied and loaded with blackberry, plum with notes of licorice and mint. This wine is perfect with roasted or grilled meats, braised short ribs and rich pasta dishes. A great value for a go to red.
