"Ripe and intense aromas of strawberries and blackberries with hints of black ink. Savory notes, too. Full-bodied, chewy and focused with linear fruit and character. Very finely crafted. Drink or hold." December 2016 #2 in James Suckling's 50 Best Value wines Under $50 in 2016"

The 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.

The esteemed team of La Rioja Alta crafted this rock-star Rioja from 100% Tempranillo. The 2010 vintage was excellent. The winery writes that "The 2010 harvest offered extraordinary quality." The Rioja Control Board rated the harvest "Excellent." Other years with this rating? 2001, 2004 and 2005.
With so much praise, you're thinking the price tag is closer to that $50 limit, aren't you? Because it's from a great producer. Because we can cellar it. Because it's so versatile, we can serve it with a variety of dishes. Bottom line is the price is just $15.79 on sale ... a flat out steal!
