Characteristics of Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva

Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva is a red wine from Rioja produced by the Luis Cañas winery. This winery is located in the town of Villabuena, La Rioja Alavesa.

Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva is made with Tempranillo (85%) and supplemented by other red varieties (15%).

The grapes come from a selection of old vines more than 45 years old. These vineyards are planted on very poor soils that ensure high quality and low performance.

For the preparation of Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva, a traditional winemaking is held. The alcoholic fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26 and lasts 18 days. The wine isaged for 20 months in new American (50%) French oak barrels (50%).

Once bottled, the wine spends 18 months more in the bottle in the cellar. We recommend decanting an hour before enjoying.

Serve at 18ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing

Tasting notes Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva

It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
Luis Cañas Selección de la Familia Reserva 2012 is a red wine with a more modern and concentrated style, with delicious aromas of ripe fruit and toasted notes that the malolactic in the barrel brings. One of the most balanced vintages.
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 Cherry red medium-high layer ruby rim. Clean and bright. Nose Intensely aromatic with a predominance of ripe red fruit. Sweet, spicy and lactic notes and a somewhat earthy balsamic background. Taste Powerful and fleshy entry. Good volume with sweet and tasty step. Very good acidity, round tannins. Long and complex.
Sight Dark cherry red colour with ruby edge. Clean and bright with high robe. Thin and elegant tear. Nose Medium-high intensity. Very expressive extremely ripe red fruit, almost jam, accompanied by spiced, lactic and roasted notes which give it a sweet character. Refreshing balsamic hints in the background complete this very interesting nose. Taste Excellent bulkiness since its attack to the finish. Very great acidity, ripe tannnins, pretty sharp, and slightly bitter and long finish with a great persistence which gives it seriouseness and presence.
Sight Dark, pretty picota cherry colour with ruby rims. Clean, bright and high-robe. Fine and elegant tears stain the glass. Nose Medium-high intensity. This new vintage shows very ripe red fruit, almost jammy, very expressive, accompanied by spicy, toasted and lactic notes that make the wine appetising. Refreshing balsamic notes in the background compliment a very interesting nose. Taste This red wine has magnificent bulk from its attack right until the end. Very good acidity, ripe somewhat dry tannins and a long, slightly bitter finish giving the wine a serious seal. Good persistence.

Sight Nice and clean cherry red colour with violet edges. Clean and bright wine with a high robe and abundant tears. Nose Frank, intense and concentrated aromas. Its abundant notes of sweet ripe fruit are released along with a wide amount of different spicy notes of vanilla, pepper, mocha and cocoa, smoky nuances and milky notes provided by the wood on an intense balsamic background. Taste Powerful, deep and very tasty wine with a long mid palate in which the complexity felt on the nose is displayed again with very expressive, fleshy notes, a velvety texture, good well integrated tannins and a good acidity. Very long.
Sight Beautiful ruby color, clean, with reflexes atejados. Clean and bright. Nose Nose is clean, good intensity. Memories of ripe fruit, jam (jam) on a background of woods, with a strong balsamic (eucalyptus, pine). Taste The mouth is powerful, dense with a structured step-by-mouth, with good tannins. The finish is huge, complex, long and persistent.

    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.
