Lan Zur Malbec Reserva 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Licorice, root vegetables and plenty of toasty oak sweetness on the nose are joined by wild cherry, rhubarb, pencil lead and a fair veneer of spicy oak and vanilla. This is softer on the palate with round tannins in an easy drinking style. It delivers plenty of black cherry, black currant fruit, a little vein of black spice and herb. Smooth and polished, it shifts to more of a black berry flavor on the back end and long finish, with acidity and wood tannin becoming more obvious. 88pts

Top 100 Wine Spectator List, rustic grape and taste that grows with aeration. A bit tight upon opening up but smooth finish.

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.

Dieser Wein zeigt ein komplexes Bukett nach exotischen Gewürzen, Leder und schwarzen Früchten. Der Körper ist voll und die Tannine sind gut eingebunden. Der Abgang ist langanhaltend und aromatisch.

Displays an enticing perfume of wood smoke, spice box, violets, espresso, and blackberry. Voluminous and concentrated on the palate, it reflects the high quality of the vintage.

Kirschrote Farbe, intensiver, ausdruckskräftiger Auftakt, Noten von reifen Früchten, Gewürzen und Vanille. Am Gaumen, sanft, fein st rukturiert, harmonische Tannine und gut eingebundene Säure. Langanhaltender Abgang, mit leichten Holz- und Fruchtnoten.

Komplexe und elegante Aromen reifer Früchte, im Gaumen gut strukturiert mit feinen Gerbstoffen und guten Fruchtansätzen. Der Abgang ist lang anhaltend. Ausgebaut wird der Wein in Barriques aus französischer und amerikanischer Eiche.

Ein ausgewogener, fruchtiger und eher leichter Rotwein. Rubinrot. Mittelkräftiges, recht komplexes Bouquet. Von der Fruchtseite her dominieren die Beerenfrüchte (Brombeere etc.) leicht, vor Dörrfrucht und etwas Steinobst. Dazu kommen etwas Vanille und Röstaromen. Im Gaumen ist der Wein trocken der Gerbstoff ist noch adstringierend. Die Struktur ist eher mittelfüllig. In der Rückaromatik zeigen sich Röstaromen und Würze recht prägnant. Mittellanger Abgang.

Kirschrot mit purpurfarbenen Nuancen. Intensives Bukett nach Vanille und geröstetem Kaffee, im Gaumen sehr weich, samtig, aber gleichwohl sehr andauernd.
