La Rioja Alta Vina Alberdi 2006
External Reviews for La Rioja Alta Vina Alberdi
Cherry red with a pinkish rim, high to medium robe. Intense aroma, predominant ripe red berries with balsamic scents, coffee, vanilla and coconut notes. Well-balanced on the palate with a silky mouthfeel, pleasant acidity.
Ruby-red. Cherry, vanilla, tobacco and anise on the perfumed nose. Juicy and focused on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering vibrant dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of mocha. Finishes on a tangy note, with gentle tannins and very good energy and cut. I’d give this wine a few more years to flesh out.
The 2006 Vina Aberdi Reserva was the only wine released by La Rioja Alta because of the challenging growing season. It has a sensual but simple bouquet of blueberry and cassis interlaced with vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and an alluring, sensual chocolate and coconut-tinged finish that has “consumer friendly” written all over it. This is irresistible. Drink now–2018.
