Bodegas LAN founded in 1972, named after the initials of the 3 provinces in the Rioja Designation of Origin: Logrono (now La Rioja) Alava and Navarra and located in the heart of Rioja Alta. A blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano, bright deep red with aromas of sweet red fruits. Complex palate with blackberry, cherry and plum flavors, gentle spices, balanced. Soft tannins, lingering finish, mineral notes on ending. Wow!

This tastes like a clean, contemporary bordeaux with a long life ahead of it. Lucky us.

Robust. Fruit for days, ball buster tannins. Good now but I'd wait five years to open the next one.

В аромате плотное, еще закрытое: черные несладкие ягоды и фрукты, деликатные тона дуба и легкие ноты сливок. во рту среднетелое, с мощными танинами, и хорошей кислотностью. Пока закрыто
