Product Description
Details

Made from vineyards over 45 years of age, Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva is one of the top wines of the Luis Cañas winery.

A single varietal Tempranillo, this Spanish red wine is made from carefully selected grapes.

Once destemmed, they were cold-macerated and fermented at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks.

Then this Reserva red wine from La Rioja was transferred into French and American oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 20 months.

Finally, Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva 2014 was delicately filtered and aged for a further 18 months in the cellar.

Aerate this Rioja red wine some time before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva has a clean, bright cherry colour with a garnet rim.

Nose

This delightful Rioja reserva exudes class and complexity. Intense notes of ripe black and red fruit, underpinned by suggestions of menthol, dry leaves, underbush, spices and some mineral remembrances. A textbook Tempranillo indeed.

Palate

Juicy notes of red fruit, combined with notes of liquorice, bitter chocolate, black truffles and Eastern spices. This red wine from Luis Cañas is meaty and smooth, with some lively tannins, a very good acidity, and a long finish with some toasted hints and slightly bitter notes.

Our personal opinion

Elegant, and age-worthy Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva 2014 is an impeccable, complex Rioja.

I put this side by side with Roda and the likes. Not for the faint-hearted. It has power, impulse and it speaks with a clear voice. Top Rioja for me.
