Editorial Reviews for Bodegas la Cana Albariño Rías Baixas
An interesting ripe nose of nectarine, soil tones, walnut oil and a hint of salty seashell greet the nose. Very smooth on entry with acidity that is well wrapped in kiwi and peach fruit. The acidity pops a bit on the back end which shows off nice complexity with a hint of nutshell and some gentle mineral tones with a very subtle vegetal edge. Finishes with good length and a green grapey freshness. This is fairly opulent but at the same time it’s awfully appealing. 90pts

I got a bottle off 67 wines after reading the reviews...It is a nice summer wine, but i think it liked a little bit of acid and fruit. This is not to say it is not good, but a bit too tame for me. I would buy it again...
For a spanish white wine under 12 dollars it is impressive! Good balance, nice fruit, Good price...I did not have this with food, but i can see it doing well with raw seafood.
I wasn't a fan... I picked up this bottle a while ago and today I recognized the bottle, not remembering what I thought of it. Oh no..It was the one bad bottle I ever bought. I am not much of a wine buff so forgive me if my description isn't the best, but I do order my fare share of Albarinos when out , often failing to remember the name because I never had been disappointed. I love albarinos, because they a subtle, crips and clean taste with just the right amount of fruit. Its the perfect wine for a hot summer day ( or any day really for me ) but this one lacked so much of this. I was so in your face... I expect that more of a Chardonnay, but this one left a bad taste in my mouth. So much that I will never forget the name now just in case it creeps its way onto a menu while I am out. I will write about the BEST tasting Albarino I had recently elsewhere on this blog.
light, crisp, fruity. Taste a bit of citrus on the pallet (grapefruit).
External Reviews for Bodegas la Cana Albariño Rías Baixas
Bodegas La Cana's 2010 Albarino was fermented in stainless steel (80%) and larger barrels (20%) and aged sur lie. Mineral, lemon zest, baking spices, and floral notes inform the nose of this round, smooth-textured, savory white. With excellent volume and length, this outstanding value will provide pleasure for another 3-4 years. ** SOLD OUT **
