Fresh red fruits, balsamic, oak notes. Great acidity. If there’s meat on the grill (or cast iron as the case may be) go for it

Cherries! American oak pulled way back. Earth and nice VA. Lively.

I think this is absolutely incredible example of some killer classic Rioja. Tart red cherry, slight sweet soy sauce, moderate earth, brooding acid, vanilla/dill still present despite likely old barrique. Paired with spicy shrimp tacos. Everyone, get some...

The trifecta of vanillin, brett, and VA.
More firepower and depth than usual from the Viña Alberdi.

Coconut and dill. Sweet and sour component is so obvious that you can hardly miss. Medium plus acidity. Soft tannins and nice finish.

If you can't smell American oak, drink this wine. My favorite Rioja producer, by far.
