2015 Luis Canas Rioja Crianza - 92 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"This estate turned out a brilliant 2015 Rioja Crianza, which is 95% Tempranillo and 5% Grenache that spent a year in a mix of French and American oak followed by a year in bottle. Medium to full-bodied, pure, and incredibly elegant, it has a terrific perfume of ripe cherries, cedarwood, and spice. It’s a complete, balanced, seamless 2015 that does everything right. It’s great today yet should cruise for a decade in good cellars."

vinous logo"(raised for 20 months in a 50/50 mix of new French and American oak barrels) Deep, lurid ruby. Displays expansive, oak-spiced red/blue fruits, spicecake, vanilla and a sexy floral quality on the deeply perfumed nose. In a fruit-forward, seductive style, showing no rough edges and very good clarity to its sweet boysenberry and cherry flavors. The floral note comes back strong on a long, supple finish that betrays just a hint of fine-grained tannins. - Josh Raynolds"

tim atkin logo 250"Juan Luis Cañas sources the Tempranillo and 5% Garnacha grapes that go into this eminently reliable Crianza from a range of villages on the north bank of the River Ebro. Balanced, modern and appealing, with a well-judged combination of French and American oak and bright red berry fruit. 2020-25"

wa91"The young and creamy 2015 Crianza is mostly Tempranillo with 5% Garnacha, matured in French and American oak barrels for 12 to 14 months. It's ripe with moderate acidity and lactic aromas intermixed with cherries and vanilla. The palate is soft with juicy fruit and lush tannins. A crowd-pleaser and a great vintage. Great value too. They produce one million bottles of this. - Luis Gutiérrez"

vinous logo"Vivid ruby. Lively red berry and floral scents and hints of vanilla and woodsmoke on the deeply perfumed nose. Fresh, spice-accented raspberry and cherry flavors are joined by a mocha element that gains strength as the wine opens up. The red fruit note repeats on a long, gently tannic finish that echoes the spicy note. - Josh Raynolds"
