The 2010 LZ is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Graciano from the Alavesa region of Rioja. It’s a pure expression of the special area of Lanciego.
Asian spices, violets, blackberry, and mineral notes inform the expressive bouquet. It opens in the glass to reveal savory, smooth, ripe, layered fruit and a pleasure-bent personality. Drink this outstanding value over the next 6 years.
