Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.
