From one of the best vintages in recent memory in Rioja, this Reserva spent 12 months in new American oak and 24 months in the bottle before it was released. The amazing raw materials that were given to
Bodegas LAN were not wasted here, the wine shows incredible spicy aromatics of sandalwood and licorice ropes. Fully integrated and bursting with flavor, this is packed with blackberry, sweet black tea, leather and a subtle peppery spice. If that is not enough for you, the finish is persistent and lasting with cleansing acid and solid, yet giving tannin. Without a doubt this is terrific wine only magnified by its measly price tag. Take advantage of this amazing value.
