Winemaker's Notes:

Deep cherry red color, with concentrated herbaceous and vanilla aromas. Meaty and rich flavors of cherry, plums and almonds with well integrated oak, a rich velvety texture and a long, powerful finish. Made from 80% Tempranillo and 20% Mazuelo grapes; aged 36 months in American oak.

About Conde de Valdemar:

The Martinez Bujanda family, producers of Valdemar wines, founded their original winery in 1889. They own 820 acres of vineyards, which makes Valdemar one of the largest estates in the Rioja. A new winery was built in 1984 to take advantage of modern technologies, integrating both new and time-honored traditions of winemaking.
