James Suckling 92 Points
Berry and chocolate with some cedar and vanilla. Full-bodied, yet tight and reserved, with firm tannins and a long, fresh finish. Tempranillo. Drinkable now, but a year or two of bottle age will soften it even more”. 92 Points, JS, October 2021.

Description
Bodegas Luis Cañas is one of Rioja Alavesa’s oldest family-owned wineries and wines destined for the Reserva de la Familia are made from a selection of grapes from some of their oldest vines (45 years+). Upon entering the bodega, the grapes were cold macerated for 72 hours on arrival at the winery. Fermentation at 26º C in sealed cement tanks under constant thermal control, with the must pumped over daily. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation took place 45 days after its primary fermentation, in barrels and is aged for 20-24 months in French and American Oak.
This is one of the most consumer friendly Rioja’s we sell, a real crowd pleaser! 85% Tempranillo with a mixture of other varieties, including a little Cabernet Sauvignon, giving it great complexity. The 2017 is utterly delicious!
A beautiful ruby colour. A clean nose with good intensity. Complex aromas of leather, ripe sweet fruit and herbs over a base of fine oak. Palate: Potent and juicy with structure and good tenacity. The finish shows lots of spice and is ample, complex, long and persistent.
