2008 Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Ruby-red. A highly perfumed bouquet displays aromas of fresh red and dark berries, pipe tobacco and peppery spices, with subtle licorice and floral nuances adding complexity. Smoky, deeply pitched blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by a mineral note that adds back end nerviness. Gentle tannins shape the finish, which shows very good clarity and lingering florality. - Josh Raynolds"

2010 Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"On the contrary, the 2010 Gran Reserva feels quite integrated and polished, with classical aromas of forest floor, mushrooms, tobacco and red and black berry fruit, all of it in a subtle and harmonious way. The palate feels quite compact, balanced and polished, with fine tannins and very tasty flavors. This is a great Gran Reserva. 20,000 bottles produced."

2011 Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"Cropped from a ripe vintage, the 2011 Gran Reserva is mostly Tempranillo with 5% Graciano, aged in new French barriques for 12 months followed by a further year in used American oak barrels. It's chewy and juicy, with fruit from a ripe vintage that takes well the long aging in barrel. It's balsamic and spicy, an updated version of a classical Rioja, clean and pleasant. 39,200 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"
