2004 Bodegas Luzon, Luzon, Jumilla ($6.92 Pops). Another great wine and value from Jumilla. This one is a Monastrell (Mourvedre) and Syrah blend. Alcohol level is 14.5%. Very Zin like. Gives a ton of blackberry fruit on the nose and upfront. Hugely complex with good shot of dirt and smooth tannin in the middle, and a memorable finish. Matched it with BBQd country ribs, and salad with our own Catalina Dressing (the folks around here don't like Blue Cheese!).

As previouly stated this is a great wine for the bucks. We have 2/3ds of a box of it (8 bottles for those in the LA state house).

This was as close as we got to the WS Top 100. The '03 earned the #43 slot, and was a different blend. Sigh! In the meantime we had this versitile wine with broiled Kielbasa, spinach, and rolls tonight. Yum!

Had my second bottle of this last night with leftover prime rib (We celebrated the Bengals whipping up on the Steelers.

Killer value, delicious. Buy by the case.

Thanks, Wonderwine. I'm amazed I have not found this before, having been active in several other forums prior.
