james suckling hq logo plain"A red with impressive richness and concentration with loads of ripe dark fruit and rich, smoky flavor. It’s full-bodied with round tannins and a flavorful finish. A little over-oaked, but should come around. Drink in 2021."

tim atkin logo 250"The villages of Leza, Navaridas, Samaniego and Villabuena supply the fruit for this oldvine blend of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano, aged in new French oak and deliberately produced in a super modern style that wouldn’t look out of place in Ribera del Duero. Floral, concentrated, compact, extracted and assertively wooded. 2022-26"

tim atkin logo 250"Three bunches per vine is the rule for this top wine from Juan Luis Cañas - hence its name in Spanish - aged in new French oak and showing strapping flavours and masses of fruit concentration. Cedar wood, damson and blackberry flavours combine seductively on the palate, but give this time. 2022-30"

2009 Luis Canas Hiru 3 Racimos - 94 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Dark ruby. Powerful, oak-spiced blackberry and blueberry aromas take on mocha, woodsmoke and vanilla qualities with air. Lush, weighty and seamless in the mouth, showing excellent focus and spicy thrust to the dark fruit liqueur, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors. This wine really stains the palate, but I get no impression of excess weight. Finishes sweet, round and extremely long, featuring smooth tannins and a repeating blue fruit note. - Josh Raynolds."

2010 Luis Canas Hiru 3 Racimos - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(all tempranillo, with malo and aging in new French and American oak): Dark purple. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays scents of spicy dark berries, cherry and vanilla, with exotic floral pastille and spicecake notes adding complexity and building with air. Pliant blackberry and cassis flavors show excellent depth and appealing sweetness, with building sweetness and no rough edges. The vanilla and floral qualities come back strong on the finish, which hangs on with superb tenacity and a hint of dusty tannins. - Josh Raynolds"
