Rioja Inspiratión Valdemar Doca Auf Anfrage 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Gute Brillanz Intensive, lebhafte dunkelrote Farbe von mittlerer Dichte. Harmonische Aromen nach Minze und Gewürzen. Sehr nuancenreich. Am Gaumen wunderbarer retronasaler Verlauf, kraftstrotzend, körperreich, konzentriert und mit pulsierender Säure. Sehr ausgewogen mit langem und beständigem Finale.

Founded in 2002, Inspiration Vineyards and Winery produces approximately 1000 cases annually, spread among seven different wines. In 2002, while waiting for our permits, we contracted with another winery facility where we could produce our first commercial wines. In June of 2003, we announced our first release, and by fall our official winery operation began on-site, with the production of approximately 500 cases. Besides continuing our efforts in producing a quality product, our new focus has been to broaden our distribution through expansion of our commercial accounts. Our mission is to produce high quality, food friendly wines at an affordable price for the consumer; using the finest quality grapes grown in an appropriate terroir, from appellations that are known and respected. Our philosophy is simple; great wines can only be made with excellent grapes. As a winegrower, it is our job to pick our fruit at the peak of ripeness and handle it carefully during the winemaking process. The resulting efforts are wines that show off the region and vineyard where they’re grown. Our wines are also meant to be enjoyed right away, with the potential of improving with a few additional years of aging. Tasting Room Appointments must be made in advance to visit our winery. Please allow ample time when planning a visit. Read less

Barnyard funky nose filled with undergrowth mushrooms and then the palate has immediate red cherry fruit with a bit of black tea and slight earthiness. Nice acidity light very nice.

Deep and rich bing cherry on the nose tinted with some great oak notes. Smoky tar leads to a light and playful, yet heavy mouthfeel (oxymoron but it shows complexity!) A touch of spiciness makes gives it power and finesse

Ripe fruit and dark berry flavors. Pleasant but it doesn't stand out in a crowd.

In the glass, Cone de Valdemar Reserva had bright cherry red color. Most Italian red wines tend to have a ruby red or after long aging a garnet red color. This looked interesting and was a good start. On the palate. the wine had a lot of leather, some cocoa, a bit of tobacco and spices. Very complex and lots of aromas but I missed the fruit component. In Italy there is saying that if wine doesn't have a fruit aroma then it's not a good wine since wine is made from fruit. Alcohol by volume was label listed at 13.5%. After taking a sip, I noticed some tannins but they were not aggressive. Cone de Valdemar from Bodegas Valdemar was dry and well-bodied. The finish was very long but I almost only tasted oak. But my expectations were not high - the wine was better than I thought it would be. Tasting notes from Vino in Love: http://vinoinlove.com/2005-bodegsa-valdemar-conde-de-valdemar-reserva-rioja-doc/

Konzentrierte, gut deckende kirschrote Farbe. Reintönig, kraftvoll, komplex in der Nase, perfekte Balance zwischen Fruchtaromen und Gewürznoten durch den Ausbau in gutem Holz. Geschmeidiges, fleischiges Geschmacksbild und herausragender retronasaler Verlauf, in dem sich Komplexität und eine grosse Persönlichkeit manifestiert.
