The wine Conde Valdemar Reserva has a very bright, clean cherry-colour with a garnet rim.
This Reserve red wine from La Rioja shows well-balanced aromas of redcurrants, blackberries and strawberries, mingled with some touches of clove, vanilla, cinnamon over a peppery background.
This blend of Tempranillo, Graciano & Mazuelo by Bodegas Valdemar is well-structured and mature, with a very good acidity and some smooth tannins. Wild berries, Eastern spices, balsam and undergrowth. Long, delicately bitter finish.
