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.
Upon initial bottle opening, the nose was off. When it sat for a while, the flavor blended and it had some good staying power in the fridge. Decant. Would buy again. Red and black fruit, nice tannin.
External Reviews for Lan Crianza
Brilliant red cherry with violet hues. Elegant ageing aromas with hints of fruit.
Aromatic, with berry, floral and spice notes, this silky, light-bodied red offers raspberry, candied cherry and vanilla flavors that show a hard-candy character yet remain fresh and appealing. Drink now through 2016. 20,000 cases made.
The 2010 Crianza displays a bright ruby color and a somehow shy nose of red cherries with a touch of fennel. The palate is soft, with sweet tannins. A nice everyday wine. What is remarkable is that they produce 2.4 million bottles of this wine, so it should be readily available. Drink 2014–2016.
