Luis Canas Reserva Rioja

Luis Canas Reserva Rioja 2012

Rioja, SpainThere was a time when inexpensive Rioja was a no-go zone. Today the results are much more reliable, as is the case with this youthful Reserva, dark in colour, fresh on the nose, and soft in texture. The attack is a smoky, red berry affair with a touch of minerality and a slight grip around the edges calling for food. The texture is dense, even fleshy, with a long, dry, savoury roasted cacao back end. One to enjoy after 2020 but if you must drink it now think lamb chops, meatballs, or a hard textured young cheese.Tasted: 11 January 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.00 private wine shops SK 26.97 SaskLiquor NB 33.99 NBLiquor Producer: Bodegas LuzonDistributors: Philippe Dandurand Wines Ltd
