2016 Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva - 91 PTS - WA

wa91"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? - Luis Gutiérrez"
