This wine is one of a number of very good, inexpensive Spanish Monastrell wines on the market today. Others I have tried and enjoyed include Yecla Castano and Yecla Carro. All are widely available for less than $8.
100 percent Monastrell (Mourvedre) grown organically, Luzon Verde is apparently another product of traditional vines and know how combined with contemporary technology and marketing savvy. The wine is dark, purplish as you would expect from young Mourvedre. Smells and flavors are a bit reduced, coughing for air. When you swirl the glass or let it sit for a few minutes, lovely aromas of violets, blueberries, cherries and warm spices come out to tease you. The smells and flavors seem intense but rather muted as if they are covered by a thin cloth. That's young Mourvedre. I've heard it said that the grape's profile fluctuates between violets and tree bark. I find some of both here, and I like it. The winemakers of all three of these Spanish wines--Castano, Carro and Verde--have done a good job of highlighting the attractive features of young Mourvedre. Of the three, I think I prefer the Castano; all are very good.
