2015 La Rioja Alta "Viña Alberdi" Reserva Rioja

SKU #1503558 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of subtle red fruit with plums, spice and cedar. Some dried flowers and dried spices, such as paprika. It’s medium-bodied with some pretty, ripe fruit in the center palate, fine tannins and a citrus and cedar undertone to the finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glistening ruby-red. Lively, smoke- and spice-accented cherry and red berry aromas are complemented by floral and tobacco flourishes. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Shows very good energy and repeating floral character on a long, focused finish framed by well-integrated tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The classic Haro-styled red 2015 Viña Alberdi, sold abroad with the mention of Reserva and in Spain as Crianza, is a good introduction to the house style: balsamic reds with abundant notes of sweet spices and cigar ash, developed aromas of forest floor and a creamy twist making small concessions for a fresher and cleaner profile in the last few years but keeping the classic style. There are notes of ground tobacco and earth, and the palate is seamless and sleek, with polished tannins and a soft mouthfeel. There are 550,000 bottles of this wine, all produced from a single master blend. It was bottled in September 2018 after two years in American oak barrels. (LG) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

K&L Notes

Founded in 1890, La Rioja Alta is one of the most experienced and universally respected wineries in Rioja. Viña Alberdi is La Rioja Alta's juiciest, most approachable Rioja to drink on the younger side. That said, it still is one of the standard bearers of great quality, affordable, traditional Rioja, aged for two full years in barrels produced on site by the company's own coopers.
