Medium-depth, cherry red, with a clean, bright pink still glass. Swirling reveals jammy notes of wild currants and herbs against a balsamic background coffee. Mild entry, with a medium. well with soft tannins and a harmonious, wine extolling the virtues of this brand. Alberdi stands out for its food-pairing versatility. As a result, it is an ideal companion to appetizers, snacks and barbecues, and great with lightly-grilled meat and fish.

James SucklingA classic and tightly knit Rioja with dried berry, spice and cedar character on the nose and palate. Medium body, very fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Acidity carries the wine and then the tannins. Gorgeous.

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.
