Had the 2005 vintage on 3 Nov, 2013 right after an Opus One from 1998. So there was a bit of a challenge. However, the Luis Canas came out of it with flying colors - velvet in color, soft vanilla and oak and plenty of dark berries (Finnish blueberry if I may), and solid acids and tannins to keep its structure. Very good choice to selected soft cheeses.

Winemaker's Notes:

After careful selection on the sorting table, the grapes are destemmed and crushed before undergoing fermentation and then maceration in stainless steel tanks for 17 days, obtaining better color extraction, as well as much more complex and tannic wines that are suitable for prolonged aging. The resulting wine is aged in French and American oak for a total of 20 months (ten months in French oak and ten months in new American oak).

Tasting Notes:

A great representation of what a fully aged Rioja Reserva has that no other region can offer: a remarkable combination of fresh and bright fruit notes, vanillin barrel notes, along with the forest floor, damp earth, and dried fruits character that barrel time provides. The herbal character of the Tempranillo grape has grown into something more singular, like tarragon, and the wine finishes with some tannic power.
