Category Red Wine
Origin Spain, Rioja
Brand Bodegas Luis Canas
Ruby red color with earthy tones. The wine shows finesse, elegance and complexity with good concentration of black fruit, thyme and rosemary with secondary aromas of leather and tobacco leaves. In the palate it is polished and rounded, making it pleasant and easy to drink. Fleshy with both elegance and power. It has touches of black fruit jam and liquorice. A long, delicious and persistent finish. Suitable for pairing with a long, copious meal where it can accommodate braised vegetables, cold cuts, peppers stuffed with hake and shrimp, mushroom omelettes, cod Rioja style, both red and white meat... and so on.

The 2016 Gran Reserva was produced with Tempranillo and 5% Graciano that matured in 70% French and 30% American oak barrels for 24 months. The wine is balsamic and spicy, with smoky oak notes and plenty of tannins n the palate, in need of powerful food. It's a bit too dry on the palate, with a faint astringency on the finish. 37,843 bottles produced. Will the oak get integrated before it fades?

The 2016 Gran Reserva is 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano sourced from Rioja Alavesa. It aged for 24 months in oak barrels, displaying a garnet hue with a purplish sheen in the glass. This fruit-forward red wine offers notes of elderberry and blackberry, complemented by hints of cedar, pencil box and a deep liqueur layer. On the palate, it is dry and rich, with reactive, grainy tannins that contribute to a pronounced dryness. This is a generous and robust Rioja.
