Tasting Notes

Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungent fruit as well as a real spicy and wild quality. As with many of the best Riojas, this wine is quite delicious right now if you want to drink some bottles while you wait for other bottles in your cellar to mature.

    The nose of this wine is full of savory, earthy notes but with hints of a plumy fruit. On the palate this wine has great poise, balance it is perfectly balanced to drink now while it should age well for another decade plus. The flavors are old school, no fruit bomb it has a complex blend of Middle Eastern spice, leather and almost no American oak signature, which for me is huge. The finish is long, intense and highlights what a superbly easy wine this is to drink.

    The blend of flavors of leather, dark fruit, wild herbs, and subtle spice is pure magic here. It's nearly impossible to find a wine outside of Rioja, where you can get this level of quality at this price point, with 8 years aging on it to boot! Lesmos has always been a staff favorite at K&L and this vintage is bound to be no exception. This is a classic, Old-World style of Rioja and a great way to introduce yourself to the area with this beautiful Reserva bottling.

    Does it get any better than the Reserva bottling from Casa Juan? In the top quality 2010 vintage, I don't think that it does. Our favorite old school Rioja producer (and to this day, still one of Spain’s best kept secrets) knocked it out of the park with the fantastic 2010 Reserva. Delicious pitch perfect fruit and savoriness for now, some years later, and beyond.
