B-21 Rioja lovers, as well as fans of killer values from categories across the board have made Viña Alberdi positively the hottest-selling label we carry. Exploding in popularity back in 2007, every subsequent vintage has recorded thousands of bottles in sales. Visiting the estate, I had a chance to taste the fabulous 2010, a vintage everyone's still talking about, plus a few older bottlings – along with a bevy of La Rioja Alta's other tremendous offerings. We discussed future plans, talked about the vintages in barrel and they offered a few sneak peeks at vintages to come. La Rioja Alta could very easily settle into a groove, take it easy; they've been leading the pack for generations. But they're not about to rest on their laurels, they're continuing to push every envelope, making every wine in their massive collection better and better. They've invested 9 million euros from vineyard to barrel rooms, and this vintage of Viña Alberdi showcases the results of the incredible investments. I can't recommend it highly enough. Killer juice, killer value – once again.

Outstanding, medium-depth garnet-red; clean and bright. The nose stands out for the intensity of aromas of wild strawberries, currants and raspberries, against a balsamic background with notes of vanilla, toasted caramel and ground coffee beans. Warm aromatic entry, with good structure and balance and soft, amiable tannins. The aromatic harmony persists on the finish, with marked freshness and balance.
