Softer than most Tempranillos. This is ready to drink now. Dirty fruit on the nose. Could probably have used some cheese to balance out the tannin. Read more

Food Pairings for Bodegas Lan Rioja Reserva
This is a very deeply, darkly colored wine. Like a really dried-out blood-black color. Very rich blackberry nose, vanilla, also some mint and clove on the nose. This is the nose I expect from a great 2004 vintage Rioja. Spice box in spades here. Blackberry note is very nice and authentic tasting. Oak is right where I expect for a Reserva, adding richness and vanilla/woody flavors, but I am very pleased with it working well with the fruit, as opposed to obscuring it. 4 of 5 is my score, this is a strong producer in a strong vintage, and at $14 I recommend it.
Softer than most Tempranillos. This is ready to drink now. Dirty fruit on the nose. Could probably have used some cheese to balance out the tannin.
Dark, dried blood hue, with dried black fruit, smoke and black tea nose; silky flavor notes of dusty dried black cherries and dried black plums with broad, silky tannins and a moderately long finish.
Beautiful Color and initial Nose that screams Old World Rioja. Slightly smoky spice and cedar gives way to fruity grapes. Taste bursts with smooth leather, spice, a little wood finally giving way to berries with nice final burst of a little acidity. Finish is moderately long but not overpowering. Works on its own or with food and has at least a few years of aging potential. I really like this wine both on its own merits but also for the price.
Full-bodied, smooth and silky! Great finish. Good with cheeses or even better with steak.
One of the best temprinillo I have enjoyed. Came by it quite by accident and am now looking for more.
A darker purplish hue than many tempranillos tasted in the past. Deep, yet still translucent. Nose: Cedar, vanilla, raspberry Palate: Immediate tart cherry, cedar, bountiful spice and licorice on the finish. Medium body. Moderately-high tannins. Recommend 20-30 minutes to allow this tempranillo to open up and relax.
