Bodegas Martínez Bujanda Rioja Conde de Valdemar Gran Reserva 2002

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sour note on the nose recall yogurt but are joined by notes of asparagus, spicy wood, a bit of Cabernet like herbaciousness and jammy, Pez-like candied tones. In the mouth this shows nice balance in a small scale that is neither complex nor intense. There’s a bit of watermelon candy that helps to add some contrast to the red berry tone before the moderate length finish kicks in with it’s somewhat dirty, leather qualities. A very difficult vintage and in the context of the vintage this is not bad. 83pts
