    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2004 Conde de Valdemar Gran Reserva is a blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo, and 5% Graciano aged for 26 months in French and American oak. Made in a traditional style, it is already beginning to show aromatic complexity from its extended aging. Cedar, leather, Asian spices, incense, black cherry, and blackberry lead to a rich, elegant, plush wine in the style of the superb 2004 vintage. Flavorful, stylish, and lengthy, it will continue to blossom with several more years of cellaring and drink well through 2024.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripened to pomegranate-scented blackness, this is an austere take on the 2004 vintage. There's a vegetal note in the tannins hinting at tobacco leaf and dried herbs, balancing the tart Bing cherry and dried red fruit character. A mature, lamby red.
