La Rioja Alta 'Alberdi' Tempranillo 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Let’s start with the noteworthy 2007 Vina Alberdi, their youngest and fruiter wine from a cold vintage. It’s produced with Tempranillo grapes from their own vineyards in the villages of Rodezno and Labastida, fermented with their natural yeast and aged in American oak barrels produced by their own coopers, the first year in new ones and then transferred to third-use ones. It was bottled in March 2010. The wine has a translucent ruby color with an orange rind and an impressive bouquet of dried flowers, caramelized orange and cloves. The palate reveals a medium-bodied, elegant and balanced wine, keeping the power of the fruit and the subtleness of the aging, which is easy to drink and true to its origin. This wine represents a very good value for traditional Rioja...91" WA 12/13

Do not walk run away from this, it is some of the worst Spanish wine I have ever had and is a incredibly horrible value.

Vivid ruby-red. Smoky red fruits and fresh rose on the perfumed nose, with vanilla and licorice nuances adding depth. Smooth and seamless, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied flowers. A hint of pipe tobacco comes up on the finish, which shows excellent clarity, supple tannins and lingering spiciness. Fully mature but I’d be in no rush to drink this classic old-school Rioja.
