Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva

2011 Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva - 95 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"One of the standouts in this report is the 2011 Rioja Gran Reserva, which is primarily Tempranillo blended with 5% Graciano. Aged two years in French and American oak followed by three years in bottle, it has a thrilling bouquet of spiced cherries, cedarwood, licorice, and graphite. Medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant and seamless, it still has ample fruit and a big mid-palate, all pointing to it evolving gracefully for 15-20 years. Count me in as a fan."

Supple and appealingly sweet, offering intense boysenberry and blackberry flavors that are complicated by suggestions of vanilla and floral pastilles. Gently blends power and finesse and finishes very long and smooth, displaying alluring sweetness and subtle, slow-building tannins. - Josh Raynolds"

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"
