Winemaker's Notes

Cherry red in color, with a medium robe, clear and brilliant with elegant pink tones on the edge of the glass. Remarkable bouquet, reminiscent of ripe fruit with gentle hints of cinnamon, caramel and coconut. Pleasant and well-structured to the palate, very well-balanced with a pleasing final acidity. Long, fruity after-taste, which will become more complex the longer it remains in bottle. A gentle and surprising evolution of this well-known wine.

"The portfolio begins with the 2001 Reserva Vina Alberdi. Medium crimson-colored, it has a fragrant perfume of cedar, tobacco, spice box, and red fruits. This is followed by an elegant wine with ample sweet fruit, excellent balance, and a pure finish. It will evolve for another 2-3 years and drink well through 2015."
-Wine Advocate
