Winemaker's Notes:

It has an intense, clean and bright red cherry color, together with red brick tones. On the nose, it presents spicy aromas of pepper and vanilla, combined with ripe black fruit. In mouth, it is rounded, fleshy and full of flavour. It is characterized by its great persistence.

This wine matches perfectly with red meat, stews and roasted food as well as game. Particularly suited for cold meats and dry cheeses.

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.
