Conde de Valdemar Old Vines Garnacha 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Chocolate, cocoa earth, tree bark, a little steel, leather, river stones and cigar ash, mushroom and woodsy red fruit. It’s showing maturity but with appealing complexity. Very smooth on entry, this shows a nice, plummy leading edge with good acidity and some lightly tarry top notes. The fruit is a bit roasted and leans toward the darker side for Grenache, with notes of black cherry, blueberry and tart black plum skin. This is smooth, round and medium- to full-bodied yet it finishes with a certain brightness and elegance due to the acidity and really fine mineral finale. Lovely complexity and freshness here. 90pts
