    Winemaker's Notes:

    LZ is a pure expression of the special area of Lanciego. The 2011 LZ is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Graciano from the Alavesa region of Rioja. It is 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2011 L.Z. is fermented and aged in cement and includes seasonings of Garnacha and white varieties such as Viura and Malvasia. It offers red currant and pomegranate mixed with clay-like aromas that unfurl teasingly with aeration. The palate is well-balanced with crisp, taut tannins. There is a core of raspberry leaf, citrus peel, chalk and dried orange peel that lead to an electrifying, tense finish. This is a fine entry-level wine.

    The Wine Advocate

    Youthful purple color. Blackberry and cherry-cola on the highly perfumed nose and in the mouth. Sappy and expansive but lively as well, with very good finishing energy and sweet, seamless persistence.
