Bodegas Riojanas Vina Albina Reserva 2015
Slightly desiccated aromas of prune soften toasty dark-fruit scents. This Reserva from a warm vintage is tight and braced by red-fruit acidity. Plum and raspberry flavors are spicy like a fine Rioja should be, while this finishes with integration and a firm texture. Drink through 2025.
A supple texture carries harmonious flavors of dried cherry, tobacco, cedar and spice in this graceful red. Features light tannins and orange peel acidity, with a vanilla-scented finish. Drink now through 2023. 50,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
