External Reviews for Conde de Valdemar Rioja Crianza
Shows a rustic, earthy, leathery quality on the nose. Forward sour-cherry flavors on the palate. nice body and length, and a good, dry finish. A fine value red to accompany grilled meats.
This 2001 showcases all the characteristics of a great vintage. It exhibits lavish quantities of smoky oak as well as prune, plum, and black cherry fruit. Medium-bodied with ripe, soft tannins, this wine finishes long and lush.
Rich, yet firm and well-integrated, this red from Spain offers concentrated plummy, woody and spicy flavors that fill the mouth and linger on the finish; a lot of wine for so moderate a price. A great match with roasted meats. Drink now through 2003.
Rioja is the leading wine producing region of Spain and is named for the Rio Oja. Nature has created the perfect spot in which to grow grapes; the right amount of sun, rain and wind. This wine, from the ubiquitous Tempranillo grape, is smooth and charming, ideal for backyard barbecues.
