Macan Rioja 2010
Wine AdvocateIn its second vintage, the Grand Vin 2010 Macan has a very Rioja profile, subtle aromas of forest floor, spices, blackberries (in fact a mixture of red and black fruit) and a lactic touch with smoky undertones plus hints of leather and ink. The palate shows good depth and is clean, focused, structured and balanced. Some earthy hints, somehow mineral, show through on this modern Rioja showing classical proportions: a clean, finely crafted Rioja. 53,500 bottles and some larger formats produced.
Wine SpectatorThis chewy red shows concentration in a savory style. Smoky, tarry and licorice notes shadow a core of plum and tobacco flavors. Dense and rather austere, though floral and vanilla details emerge on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2030. 5,000 cases made.
