This is one of the nicest bottles of Rioja that I have ever tasted. Absolutely classic in terms of style, velvety smooth with rich flavours of cherry, raspberry, and a hint of spice on the finish. The fruit is not overpowering. Instead, Bodega Valdemar perfectly balances the finesse of the old-world with the intensity of the new. I would be very surprised to hear that someone did not thoroughly enjoy this Gran Reserva.
