    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep cherry red with a pinkish rim. Fresh and clean on the nose, with fine aromas reminiscent of ripe red berries, cherries and balsamic spices, including notes of clove, cinnamon and vanilla. Well-balanced on the palate with a silky mouthfeel, with good tannins, a lingering finish and a refreshing touch of acidity that gives the characteristic liveliness typical of Viña Alberdi. This wine willl continue to slowly mature over the next 5 years. A perfectly balanced wine from an outstanding vintage.

    Viña Alberdi is a highly versatile wine. It is perfect with canapes, tapas and barbeque food, as well as being an excellent accompaniment to rice and creamy pasta dishes, grilled meats and fish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark red. Redcurrant, dried cherry and vanillin oak on the nose, with a smoky mineral quality in the background. Lively red fruit and rose pastille flavors are complemented by sweet vanilla bean and cola nuances. The oakiness fades away on the long finish, which is juicy, expansive and seamless. This wine's lively acidity makes it refreshing and easy to drink now, but it really deserves patience.

    Not to strong, but great taste. Good for the price.
