Luis Cañas wine review
9.95 Euros, a 6.5/10 for us
A disappointment. But our experience with this bottle of red is the very same we had drinking Sierra Cantabria, another La Rioja wine made (mostly) from Tempranillo grapes.
Luis Cañas winery is located in Villabuena, just north of the Ebro river in the Basque country (part of the la Rioja denomination of wines).
Description: Just like the Santa Cantabria bottle we had, Luis Cañas died coming out of the bottle. Reviews I’ve read describe “a strong berry smell”, “fruity, round, smooth” ie. all the things we like. But we didn’t get any of that.
I saw another review that suggested that Luis Cañas needs aeration – it needs to be decanted. And it’s true. We decided to try the bottle again a couple of days after opening it and was a completely different wine.
Value: at 9.95 Euros it’s at the very top of the 5 – 10 Euro price range….a price range that has some very good wines.
Maybe I should give Luis Cañas another chance. But there’s too many wines out there and sometimes a wine just gets one chance to impress…
