2013 Luis Canas Rioja Reserva - 92 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Also terrific, the 2013 Rioja Reserva offers a deeper, slightly more powerful style as well as classic notes of ripe red and black fruits, cedarwood, vanilla, and spice. Full-bodied, concentrated, and beautifully balanced, it’s another smoking good wine from this estate that’s going to evolve gracefully for over a decade. This cuvée is 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano, all aged 18 months in 70% French oak and 30% American oak."

2013 Luis Canas Rioja Reserva - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(aged for 18 months in 70% French and 30% American oak barrels, all new) Limpid ruby. Expressive red and dark berry preserve aromas, along with suggestions of vanilla, cola and roasted coffee. Round, sweet and open-knit, offering juicy raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that firm up steadily on the back half. Dusty tannins add grip to a long, focused finish that leaves bitter cherry and dark chocolate notes behind. - Josh Raynolds"

tim atkin logo 250"2013 was the year in which Juan Luis Cañas and his team started to use a little less oak on his wines, to good effect in my view. This assemblage of Tempranillo with 5% Graciano is still a modern style, with 20% new wood, but it's spicy, refreshing and nuanced with some grip on the finish. 2019-23"

2012 Luis Canas Rioja Reserva - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The 2012 Reserva showed lots of roasted sesame seed, smoky and oaky notes intermixed with aromas of nuts and ripe berry fruit. The palate showed abundant, dusty tannins that give it a little bit of a drying texture. This blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano was cropped from a very dry and warm vintage. The wine matured in oak for 18 months. 150,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutierrez"

wa89"The 2013 Reserva is a blend of Tempranillo with 5% Graciano, matured in used oak barrels for 18 months—12 months in French barriques and the following six in American ones. There are notes of smoked meat and some balsamic aromas, cigar ash and incense. It's very approachable and polished with contained ripeness. 250,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutierrez"
