    July 21, 2018 - It smells like strawberry jam, raspberry and mushroom. It tastes like mushroom, nutmeg, barnyard, peach blossom and strawberry. The body is medium. The wine has silky texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity.

    July 20, 2017 - I love this wine for the price ($14). Now the American oak is strong on the nose and I love teevines "mix of coffee and chocolate powder (nestle quick)." The nestle quick is strong as well. The red fruit seems a bit sweeter than my last note- more cranberry than cherry. This is just an amazingly interesting age-worthy wine for $14. I bought 2 cases and still feel like I missed an opportunity!

    September 18, 2015 - A typical elegant and stylish Vina Alberdi. Lacks a bit of stuffing compared to the 2005, 2004 and 2003. Typical dusty cherry, strawberries, vanilla, cranberry, minerals and spice aromas. Medium bodied elongated and stylish palate with nice oak, elevated acidity, a fullish middle and ends medium bodied and tangy. To drink with tapas, chorizo, rare lamb fillet, hard Pyreneean goats cheese.
