Rioja, Edición Limitada 2011

Bodegas LAN

Intense garnet color with bright red hues. Complex yet attractive nose of ripe fruit (plums, blackberry, and redcurrant), hints of sweet spice (clove, cinnamon), layers of coffee, cigar-box and the earthiness and minerality characteristic of all the wines made with the grapes sourced from the “Viña Lanciano” estate.

Reviews

  • "94 points. Top 100 Wines of 2015, #23. Highly Recommended. This rich red delivers ripe, racy flavors of blackberry, kirsch, toast, spice and mineral. Plush but dense, with subtle yet powerful tannins and tangy acidity. A big wine, showing energy and style. Drink now through 2031. 6,250 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
  • "90 points. The 2011 Edición Limitada (or Limited Edition, you have both on the label) is a blend of Tempranillo with 12% Graciano and 8% Mazuelo aged for 15 months in barrels.With a core of black fruit aromas, it has plenty of balsamic and oak-driven notes highlighted by smoke, vanilla, clove and dill. The palate is medium to full-bodied with surprising acidity that seems to need a bit of time to integrate. 37,500 bottles." (Wine Advocate)
