Bodegas LAN Reserva 2012, Rioja

92 points, Tim Atkin:

“A marriage of Tempranillo with 8% Mazuelo and 2% Graciano. Serious, spicy and deeply coloured, as the bodega's reds tend to be, this is another stylishly oaked, ageworthy wine from María González.”

91 points, Smart Buy, Wine Spectator:

“A thick, firm texture carries ripe flavors of blackberry and fig paste in this solid red. Notes of dark chocolate, smoke and forest floor add complexity. The tannins are well-integrated, and balsamic acidity keeps this lively. Tempranillo and Mazuelo. Drink now through 2028.”
