Natalie's Score: 90/100

Attractive baked fruit on the nose and palate of this full-bodied, layered Spanish red wine. The grapes for this wine are sourced from low-yield vines, which results in a deeper, darker concentration in the flavour of the grapes and final wine. The winery is located inland in southeastern Spain: Jumilla is actually a semi-desert with a continental climate that produces very intense red wines.

Food pairings: cheese pizza, meat pies, meat and cheese stuffed Portobello mushrooms.

Reviews and Ratings

Luzón Selección 12 Meses Crianza (2013) is a 50% Monastrell, 20% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon,10% Merlot red wine blend from the Jumilla wine region in Spain. Each wine in the blend was aged separately in French and American oak barrels for 12 months. Ripe blackberries, blueberries, incense and spice are on the nose and palate with a spicy and toasty vanilla finish. Great acidity to match. Fantastic value from Jumilla. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
