Inspiracion Valdemar has a bright red cherry color with violet glints. On the nose, it displays complex and ripe blackberry aromas, combined with subtle spicy notes. Fleshy, tasty and meaty on its passage through the mouth, displaying balsamic notes. It reveals a rounded and long finish.
It is a great match with stewed and grilled meat, as well as with dry and semi-dry cheeses. Perfect for all kinds of Iberian and non-Iberian cold meats.
"The 2008 Inspiracion Valdemar is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano aged for 10 months in French and American oak. Smoke, Asian spices, incense, and violets merge with succulent blackberries leading to a rich, forward, plush offering that can be enjoyed now through 2018."
The Wine Advocate
"This vintage blends tempranillo with 10% graciano and four percent maturana, aged mostlin in French oak. The fruit has the coolness of forest berries, dark and fragrant; the wine is firm and juicy, lasting on wood spice. "

Literally reminiscent of drinking a cigar. Softened a tad with lots of air, but never opened to flavor beyond the heavy tobacco.
