This wine won the Decanter World Wine Awards 2013 Trophy, for Red Rioja Reserva over £15
"Expressive modern style of Rioja with good lifted florality and a ripe berry nose. Medium bodied, supple and toasty with brown sugar, bergamot, orange peel and a tobacco finish."
It also won the International Wine Challenge 2013 Gold: "Toffee, caramel oak, dark berries and blue fruit; fine and chewy tannins. Modern."
Bodegas Luis Cañas has been at the heart of Rioja since 1928 though the contemporary story begins in 1970 when Luis Canas became the first Rioja Alavesa winemaker to bottle his young wine rather than sell it in bulk. Situated in Villabuena, Luis Cañas utilise their knowledge of the local climate, terroir, cultivation methods and a real sense of pride and dedication to create these unique wines - every harvest Luis Cañas, now 83, stands at the head of the selection table keenly ensuring only the best parcels of grapes are used.
The end result is wine consistently packed with fruit and wrapped in a silky, oak-laced layer of flavour that seems unique to Rioja - truly world class! (Of course as Evines will pay for delivery when you order any six bottle, this is a treat worth adding to your mix)
