2018 La Rioja Alta Vina Alberdi Reserva
This may seem like a humble wine, but that is a ruse. Viña Alberdi from La Rioja Alta is an outstanding wine from a storied producer. 132 years of winemaking, thoughtful vineyard management and adherence to high standards shine through from this terrific bottling.
Bright, deep ruby color with dark cherry hues on the rim of the glass. It stands out for its intensity, with red fruit aromas (strawberries, raspberries, redcurrant and cherry) leading to elegant notes of vanilla, toffee, coffee cream, cinnamon, brioche and hazelnuts. The balance between acidity and alcohol stands out on the palate, with soft, sweet, rounded tannins and a pleasant final sensation.
James Suckling, 93 points
A pretty nose of raspberries, cassis, fresh herbs, vanilla and sweet spices. It’s medium-bodied with round tannins. Creamy and fruity with chocolatey character on the mid-palate. Supple finish with excellent length. Tangy acidity. 100% tempranillo. Drink or hold.
