Conde de Valdemar Gran Reserva Rioja 2005 Having recently had the 1982 Gran Reserva and 1981 Reserva I am a paid up fan of this winery. 2005 was a crackingly good vintage and the wine is too. Dense, dark fruited and almost inky, there is hints of hung meat, earth, tea leaf, black stones and much more. The palate is rich and full bodied with plentiful fine grained tannins. A lick of acid helps keep this wine fresh. Think long term cellaring. Think 50 years in a great cellar!
