For those who have never experienced a Gran Reserva Rioja, it's truly an amazing combination of nature and winemaking skill. For over five years, this traditional blend of Tempranillo and Mazuelo from 40+ year old vineyards sat in wooden barrels and bottles, waiting for its initial release. Who needs a professional wine cellar when the winery is doing all the work for you? They consider the 2016 vintage as one of the best of the decade, and their way of paying homage to the passage of time, patience and expertise. Elegant and subtle, it's ready to drink yet still evolving. Bodegas LAN is one of the most important wine producers of Spain, on account of its illustrious history, and its omnipresence in the contemporary Spanish wine scene.  We still can't believe this Gran Reserva is Under $20!

James Suckling: 93 Points

"Bitter chocolate, raspberries, blackberries, spice box and some spearmint on the nose. Complex and flavorful, with a medium to full body, a firm tannin frame, and a lengthy, compact finish." James Suckling, 93 Points

Wine Spectator: 92 Points

"Lively and harmonious on the palate, this medium- to full-bodied version offers an appealing range of pureed black cherry and cassis, minerally iron and smoke, mocha and licorice notes. Silky in texture, with fine-grained tannins emerging on the lingering finish. Shows good focus throughout, yet is very accessible. Tempranillo and Graciano. Drink now through 2030." The Wine Spectator, 92 Points
