Conde de Valdemar Rioja Crianza 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 90% Tempranillo and 10% Mazuel, Conde de Valdemar Crianza 2011 is a lovely red cherry color with a garnet rim. On the nose, it has complex ripe fruit aromas and slight spicy notes from the 15 months of cask ageing that it undergoes in American Oak casks. Rounded, well-balanced and full-flavoured on the palate. Very expressive with a long finish.

Barnyard notes. Cherry dark chocolate notes on the palate with bright acidity.

fair amount of oak in the mouth, a bit too much for me

Deep, juicy raspberries and a very balanced body with soft tannins and a medium finish.

Cherry on the nose and ripe fruit on the tongue along with strong hints of oak.

Vanilla, chockolate, red fruits, some earth on the nose. Good finish but tannins dried my mouth quite strongly, maybe this wine should age a little. Needs decanting for sure.

Intensives Kirschrot mit dunkelvioletten Tönen. In der Nase sehr aromatische Intensität. Noten nach reifen, roten Früchten, die in reiche Vanille- und Röstaromen übergehen. Am Gaumen samtig, gute Struktur. Retronasale Aromen nach reifen, roten Früchten und Vanille. Langer Abgang.

One of Spain's most modern wineries, Valdemar is noted for their silky-smooth Riojas that balance ripe Tempranillo fruit with nicely toasty oak. Their Crianza is the pinnacle of their house style.

Black cherry fruit is ripe yet crisp in this focused red, framed by smoky oak and balanced by tobacco and mineral notes. Medium-bodied, with good drive and intensity.

Exquist und edel sind die Worte, die diesen Wein am Besten beschreiben. Nicht laut, sondern nach klassischer Rioja-Art verwöhnt er mit feinsten Kaffee- und Röstaromen, Dörrpflaumen und Lakritztnuancen. Genießen Sie die Reife und Eleganz dieser Reserva.

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.

Bright ruby cast. Moderately light-bodied. Full acidity. Moderately extracted. Moderately oaked. Mildly tannic. Sweet oak, minerals, red fruits. Generous woody aromas lead to a lean and angular palate. Flavorful and zesty through the wood-accented finish.
