1994 Bodegas Lan Viña Lanciano Reserva Rioja
Plum, blackberry, vanilla and nutmeg flavors are rich and ripe in this fleshy yet firm red. The tannins are big but well integrated, and the finish is clean and long. A balanced, expressive wine that's accessible now...
Lanciano is Bodegas Lan's single vineyard estate in Lanciego, Rioja Alavesa, covering 72 hectares and planted to Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano. The 1994 vintage was one of the strongest of the 1990s in Rioja, and many of them are drinking beautifully today.
