The grapes used for Luis Cañas Reserva wines come from vineyards of apx.40 years of age, producing only 5000 kg. per hectar. Actually it's a very versatile wine with a fresh character and lots of fruit which combines with a lot of dishes. Try it with meat, game, fish, cheese or even chocolate

Tasting notes

95% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano. Average age of the vines: 40 years.

Aged during 18 months in oak casks and another 12 months in the bottle. 60% in French oak and 40% in American oak. Age of casks; A 20% of the wine ages in brand new barrels and the rest in 2nd. year barrels.

Deep blacky cherry red with ruby highlights

The fruit deliberately dominates the aromatic profile of this wine, both red and dark berries with touches of toasted oak, liquorice, cinnamon and bay leaf. Very attractive and elegant right from the beginning. 

It is amazing how much fruit the 5% of Graciano actually gives this wine. The first taste has a lot of fruit and honey upfront. The wine lingers in your mouth and is velvety and easy to drink, making it a serious wine but with considerable charm.
