This 2011 has to be one of the screaming values in the Riserva category. Sweetly aromatic, dried cherries, floral, clove, Indian spice, leather, coffee, vanilla, hint of dried tobacco leaf. Lean structure, med + acidity and grainy, bone dry tannin. Just a very classy and very delicious offering for a modest price.

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

I'm not very experienced with Tempranillo but this was very enjoyable. This was a gift and I'm glad I have one more!

Made it for happy hour by 2 minutes, so $24 for this QPR stunner. Pairing with lamb chops and steak churrasco. Booya for Bulla!

Surprisingly soft on tannins. Blackberry notes perfectly smooth palate. A great wine for its quality.

Fruit forward, nicely structured wine, dry, oak, leather and integrated tannins, pleasant on the tongue and nice finish with balanced acidity.
