2003 Finca Luzon Jumilla (Spain)
Nice value, but not a star. Dark, crystalline ruby color. Fresh, intersting high-toned nose of crushed stones, plums, English Leather cologne, and peanuts. Soft-textured in the mouth, yet with an austere flavor profile, tending toward minerally rather than fruity flavors. Some tannin yet to be resolved in the finish. An idiosyncratic, yet fairly well made wine. 84. Was $8.77 at Spec's on Smith.
