93 Points, James Suckling: “A pretty nose of raspberries, cassis, fresh herbs, vanilla and sweet spices. It’s medium-bodied with round tannins. Creamy and fruity with chocolatey character on the mid-palate. Supple finish with excellent length. Tangy acidity. 100% tempranillo. Drink or hold.”Winery: “One of the great old estates of Rioja, La Rioja Alta began in 1890 when five Riojan and Basque families merged their vineyard holdings and established a winery in Haro (relocated in 1996 to be closer to the vineyards in Labastista).One hundred twenty-five years later, La Rioja Alta continues to produce some of the most classic wines in the region, embracing its long history, commitment to tradition, and strictly estate-grown production. With more than 400 hectares under vine, the estate focuses on its old vines, manages the vineyards without the use of artificial fertilizers, produces barrels from its own cooperage, and assiduously maintains the integrity of its wines, only producing Reserva and Gran Reserva wines in worthy vintages.Viña Alberdi is characterized by a notable food-pairing versatility. It is an ideal companion to appetizers, snacks, and barbecues, perfect with rice, pasta, and stews, and great with lightly-grilled meat and fish.” Bottle375ml, corkVarietal100% TempranilloAlcohol14%Aging2 years in American oak barrelsRegionLa Rioja, Spain
