The 2015 Vina Alberdi Rioja Reserva, by La Rioja Alta, offers intense aromas of raspberries, red cherries, wild strawberries, and red currants set against a balsamic background of vanilla, toasted caramel, biscuits, coffee, and sweet mints. This medium-bodied red is fresh and vibrant on the palate, with soft tannins and a harmonious finish. Aromatic harmony persists through the aftertaste, with notes of red fruit jam, prunes, coffee, vanilla and caramel. Truly a great value in entry-level Rioja!
