Simply Irresistible! I can't get this Robert Palmer song out of my head after tasting this wine because it best decribes this wine! It really is "simply irresistible".

Aromas of smoke, spice, and black berry. Same notes greet the palate along with leather, dark chocolate, and expresso. Complex and perfectly balanced.

Simply Irresistible!

The 2005 Lan Reserva is a medium bodied, integrated wine with nice aromas of typical Rioja notes: cherry, oak, sandalwood. The acidity is nice, tannins are refined (decant for 30 min) and the finish is long. It is ready to drink now and will be good for another 10+ years with moderate improvement. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - reasonably priced for well crafted wine. Tasted 1500 ml bottle #249383. Tasted Dec/11.
