La Rioja Alta Viña Alberdi Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2011

Ratings on Delectable

Jordan Wardlaw Delectable Pro

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.

Very nice overall. The acids and tannins balance out excellently. This is an easy drinker that brings out the best of Rioja at excellent value.
