2006 Bodegas LAN Rioja Crianza

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

Ruby red color hints at depth and the nose fulfills the promise with plum and fig, spicy white pepper, and dark caramel. Itís a wonderful nose that keeps you coming back for more.  The taste is very traditional Rioja, softer than the nose would leave you to believe but nicely balanced. It has a soft fruity start with a very spicy middle that matches the nose then a long subtle growing, surprisingly soft tannic finish. This is a very approachable, very well done wine. This is one of the best Riojas I've had it is available at Harry and David Country Store now.

Drink now through 2013.
