The Full Review

L is for Logroño, A is for Álava and N is for Navarra. LAN has been making wine in Alta Rioja since the 70’s and is always a guarantee of quality and balance. This Gran Reserva (aged three years before release) is classic Rioja, with mostly Tempranillo and a slice of Mazuelo (Carignan) for acidity. The combo of American and French oak aging has kept this wine at just the right place, keeping it muscular yet lean with classic aromas of cinnamon and vanilla wafting through the nose and palate along with ripe cherry notes mingling with some tertiary hues of leather and tobacco leaf from its time in the bottle. At under $25 this is a steal of an awesome wine that will please a crowd.
