Tasting note

The Crianza from Luis Cañas is always a textbook example of the category. The 2014 Crianza is no exception, with those sweet lactic aromas, cinnamon and vanilla intermixed with Fruit of the Forest notes. The palate is silky, smooth and supple, a champion in drinkability. It's remarkable that they produce 1.5 million bottles of this wine. Drink Date: 2016-2019. Score - 91. (Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com, Aug. 30, 2016)
