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.

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

Some dirt and cherries. For the price and age, it’s a great bottle.

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.
