BODEGAS LAN Rioja Edición Limitada 2002
95 points, $45
This rich red tastes like blackberry jam on toasted brioche. Thick on the palate, oozing with sweet fruit and oak, with muscular tannins that barely ripple the surface. Yet it remains fresh, with a clean, floral finish. Balanced and lively. Atypical for t —Thomas Matthews

95 points, $55
