Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A drier style Spanish red. Dryness comes from elevated levels of acidity along with classic obvious levels of oak as per Spain.
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Conde Valdemar Reserva 2011, from the Rioja region of Spain, shows a lovely deep ruby color and reveals aromas of strawberry sauce, dried raisin, cigar box, bay leaf and oak. Made from 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Garnacha, this Spaniard exhibits a full body, with a long and warm finish. Tastes of sour cherry, dried fig, black pepper, dried leaves, cocoa and oak will make you travel to the amazing Rioja region. Enjoy!
Conde Valdemar Riserva 2011 is a fleshy and seductive Rioja red blend of Tempranillo and Mazuelo from the Rioja Alavesa with Grenache from the Rioja Baja. Lots of ripe and rich dark fruit on the palate finishing with white pepper and oak spice. Drink now or hold for three years. - Community Wine Reviews
