The trifecta of vanillin, brett, and VA. More firepower and depth than usual from the Viña Alberdi.

Ripe dark cherry & kirsch with a touch of vanilla. Medium bodied with nice sweet cherry, juicy bright acidity and smooth finegrained tannins. Perfect wood management with the fruit shining through. Long finish and great drinkability. A classic Rioja.

Hadn't had a rioja like this one in a long time. It was lighter than I expected, full of complexity. The tannins were present but approachable, nice acidity, really enjoyed it.

Think it will "improve" as it breaths. Rookie move - did not remember to open it before the pizza arrived!
