Chosen as one of the 5 Best Wine Cellars of Rioja by Wine and Spirits magazine their Conde de Valdemar range of wines includes the crisp, energetic Viura white and a selection of beautifully made Tempranillo wines from Crianza through Reserva and the top-of-the-range Gran Reserva, a blend of Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano from the family vineyards in Oyón, Logrõno and Ausejo.

Tasting Note:
If you like aged wines then this if for you! Garnet in colour but hanging onto some it's primary ruby shades. This wine features a powerful and complex nose filled with aromas of ripe black cherry strawberry and cranberry, and the full spice cabinet is on show! Spicy notes of nutmeg, cardamon, aniseed, truffle and cocoa touches with leather, earth, tobacco leaf, dusty cupboard and grandmothers closet.
With all those characteristics it has a well balanced palate and with silky tannins and a long persistent finish. Very elegant, and very well made.

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Long finish.
