2010 Luis Cañas Crianza Rioja


Went to check out a spanish tapas and wine bar in Brisbane called Peasant.  After enjoying the Luis Cañas Barrel Fermented Viura, I opted for a bottle of this Rioja which was recommended by the waiter.  It drank beautifully with a charcuterie board, chorizo, and croquettes.

A nice precise nose with gentle use of oak and some cherry notes.  Very clean structured palate.  Good acidity and round tannins held up well against the strong flavors of the cured meats and croquettes.  I would definitely buy this again, as soon as I can find some available here in Australia.

Price:     $75 (by the bottle at Peasant in Brisbane) 
Varietal: Tempranillo
Tasted: September 2014
