Characteristics of Luis Cañas Gran Reserva

Luis Cañas Gran Reserva is a red wine produced by Luis Cañas, in the D.O Rioja.

The winery Luis Cañas is a family run business located in Villabuena (La Rioja Alavesa). The family has been producing wines since the 20th century.

Luis Cañas Gran Reserva is produced from the variety Tempranillo (95%) and Graciano (5%).

The grapes originate from old vines, aged between 50-60 years old, low yielding vines.

The harvest is performed using small 15kg capacity boxes, once at the winery the grapes undergo a double selection process: bunches and grapes.

For production, the fermentation process is completed in wooden vats, the malolactic fermentation is achieved through new French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels.

Tasting notes Luis Cañas Gran Reserva

This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight Ruby red with garnet reflections. Clean, bright and expressive. Nose Large aromatic intensity, ripe red fruit which is in good harmony with the wood brought forth from the ageing process. Smoked, coffee and tobacco reminiscences. Taste Very balanced, round and enjoyable. Mid-palate is unctuous and fruity. Good acidity. The finish is very fresh with no hint of astringency.
Sight Pretty and intense ruby red colour with terracotta rims. Clean and bright with pretty tears shown on the glass. Nose Elegant and complex with aromas of undergrowth, thyme and rosemary. Notes of tobacco and leather. Taste This wine's palate is well-rounded, balanced and warm. Touches of fruits in liqueur and notes of jammy citrus fruits (orange).

    Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

    To talk about the Cañas family and wine we have to go back more than two centuries, although the winery, which still has the same family character, was founded in 1928. However, it was in 1970 when Luis Cañas printed his name on the label of his "harvester's wine". From this date onwards, the winery gradually experienced a rise in marketing, and started to develop what is nowadays one of the exemplary wineries of La Rioja Alavesa. Without taking refuge in excessive conservative traditionalism, the personality of Juan Luis, one of the most restless and innovative winemakers in the country, the experience and know-how of the winery team, have made it possible for their wines to be recognised with the most prestigious national and international awards.
