Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2010

A deep powerful Gran Reserva from one of Rioja Alavesa’s most enduring family run wineries. The hillside terraced vineyards are sheltered by the Sierra Cantabria Mountains to the north from harsh weather extremes. Small plot production is utilized in this region of infertile chalky clay soil to produce clusters of excellent quality. Almost 900 plots are needed to complete the approximately 400 hectares of estate-owned or cellar-controlled vineyards, some with vines more than 100 years in age.

Tasting notes
Rich ruby red color. Intense and concentrated on the nose with warm, fresh notes of chocolate and cocoa. The barrel is present with notes of toasted wood, peat and smoke with spicy and black fruit touches. It is potent on the palate and shows nerve and good structure, an expression of wines from great vintages.

 


"On the contrary, the 2010 Gran Reserva feels quite integrated and polished, with classical aromas of forest floor, mushrooms, tobacco and red and black berry fruit, all of it in a subtle and harmonious way. The palate feels quite compact, balanced and polished, with fine tannins and very tasty flavors. This is a great Gran Reserva. 20,000 bottles produced."

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #226, August 2016), 92 pts

"Dark plum cake and earthy aromas. A full body, moderately dry tannins and quite fresh acidity make this a Rioja classic. Drink now."

Leindl Riesling Heiligenstein 2013

Medium yellow green. Fine nuances of ripe apricot, a hint of yellow apple, delicate herbs and spices, mineral Touch, hints of candied orange zest. Juicy, elegant, fine stone fruit, touch of finesse acidity, salty minerality in the finish, remains long, already well to drink.


Review:

"Scents of buddleia, gentian, thyme and lavender immediately hint at the site in which this grew, and there is corresponding inner-mouth perfume to delightfully complement luscious apple and white peach on the satiny, palpably extract-rich palate, as do also a glowing piquancy of pits and pips and Veltliner-like savor of blond tobacco. The buoyant and profoundly protracted finish here leaves behind a soothing and intriguing carpet of flavors while not forgetting its first duty to refresh. - David Schildknecht"

Intense white fruit aromas when young, it develops complex nuances after a few years in the bottle.
In the mouth it is ample, full and pleasant with a long and fruity finish.

Fermentation in Stainless Steel tank at controlled temperature.


"Green-tinged gold. Mineral-accented melon, peach and pear scents are complicated by hints of ginger and chamomile. Supple, expansive and seamless in texture, offering juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors that are braced and lifted by a jolt of bitter lemon pith. Closes silky and long, with subtle, lingering floral and mineral notes. - Josh Raynolds"

- Vinous (January 2017), 90 pts

"The white 2015 Vilerma shows really well for the warm vintage. It's mainly Treixadura (67%) and the rest a myriad other varieties including Godello, Albariño, Lado, Loureira, Caíño and Torrontés. It ferments in stainless steel and is bottled unoaked and without malolactic fermentation. It's very classic with notes of flowers, herbs, white fruit and a fresh, soft palate, with less acidity that 2014. Nicely balanced, approachable and easy to drink. 45,775 bottles produced. I also tasted a 2012 that was to die for, with great complexity, nuance and depth. Bravo! - Luis Gutiérrez"
