Bodegas Lan Rioja Crianza 2008
|Tasting notes: Brilliant red cherry with violet hues. Elegant ageing aromas with fruity notes. It develops a good balance at the palate coming from the sweet and elegant tannins.

The 2008 Crianza is aged for 12 months in American and French oak. The nose is rather subdued despite rigorous coaxing: introverted black fruit with tertiary aromas that I would like to have seen more of. The palate is nicely balanced with slightly chewy, broad-shouldered tannins and a bold, grippy finish that is brutish at the moment. A few months bottle age will do this keenly priced Crianza no harm. Drink 2013-2017. ”
