Lan Crianza 2010
Year… 1972. Bodegas LAN is founded and named after the initials of the 3 provinces in the Rioja Designation of Origin: Logroño (now La Rioja), Álava and Navarra. It is located in the heart of Rioja Alta, which is synonymous with tradition and prestige.
A great Spanish wine for this price range. Very deep texture and an overall great wine to try. I believe this is a slightly less viscous wine, at 13.5% ABV, but it maintains a sharp, deep, oaky taste. Enjoy!
Cherry Red Color, light tanins . Good balance between fruit & oak, however I found the wine a little light in structure & finish. Nice wine, good value, but not sure why on top 100 WS list.
Opaque cherry-plum hue, aromas of red stone fruits, licorice and vanilla; flavor notes of resinous ripe plum, chalky cherries with vanilla on refined tannins over a moderate finish. Well made, good everyday value, but a wonderful label for less than $10.
Kind of plain and uninteresting as Rioja go-- but nothing "wrong" or offensive. Just average.
On the nose, mostly smokey cherry. On the palate, good black cherry and cassis fruitiness highlighted by bright acidity. Toasted oak is well integrated so that it is complimentary, not overwhelming. Firm tannins round out the structure. Moderate smokey, mildly peppery finish.
External Reviews for Lan Crianza
Brilliant red cherry with violet hues. Elegant ageing aromas with hints of fruit.
A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2008 Bodegas LAN Rioja Crianza 750ml
Fresh and balanced, this red brims with cherry, spice and licorice, with light, firm tannins and vibrant acidity. The texture is generous yet delicate. Not heavy, but vivacious. Drink now through 2014. 200,000 cases made.'
It's back! We sold it out after it received a 90 point rating and a spot on the Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2010. A polished Rioja with ripe plum, warm spices, hints of telltale Rioja leather and a velvety texture. Great deal of complexity for under $15. It's a steal.
The 2006 Crianza is 100% Tempranillo that spent 12 months in French and American oak. Cherry red in color, it offers up an attractive nose of cedar, espresso, tobacco, and black cherry. This leads to a ripe, savory offering with plenty of spice and earth notes, a bit of structure, and 1andndash;2 years of aging potential. Enjoy this excellent value from 2011 to 2018.
Auge: Elegante kirschrote Robe, rubinroter Fond, violette Schimmer; Nase: Harmonische Edelholznoten und Waldbeerenaromen; Gaumen: Ausdrucksstarker Wein, saftig, vielschichtig - elegante, süsse Tannine; Finale: Lang anhaltend, nobel, angenehm, rein
Light red. Fresh red berry and floral aromas display a vibrant, straightforward character. Juicy, tightly wound red fruit flavors betray no tannins and pick up a zesty, peppery quality with air.
