La Rioja Alta "Vina Alberdi" Rioja Reserva
La Rioja Alta is one of the best producers in the Rioja region of Spain. This wine is Sophia Vergas in a glass. It's sexy, spicy and delicious. Made with 100% Tempranillo, this is the best expression of a Rioja that you can find at this price point. This is a bold wine full of vanilla and baking spices.
Medium-depth, cherry red, with a clean, bright pink rim. Intense nose, ruled by fruity notes, forest strawberries and red berries enveloping a core of caramel, liquorice, vanilla and cocoa. Outstanding structure in the mouth. Well-balanced acidity, with fine, gentle tannins. Vibrant and lively aftertaste with an elegant acidity.
Beautiful to drink on it's own, or with a nice Spanish cheese, like Manchego.
