La Rioja Alta Viña Alberdi Rioja Reserva 2010
|Brand||La Rioja Alta|
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Viña Alberdi is a Tempranillo blend from different vineyards from what they consider an extraordinary vintage. This wine is matured in American oak barrels built by their own coopers, the first year in new barrels and the second one in third-year barrels with four manual rackings. This is the younger of their wines, with even some red berry aromas and spicy oak, quite harmonious. The palate is lively, balanced and polished, with tasty flavors and bright acidity. Delicious. 500,000 bottles produced.
Wine SpectatorThis silky red offers dried cherry, orange peel, tea and tobacco flavors, with light, firm tannins and citrusy acidity. Focused and graceful, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2020. 41,666 cases made.
