Rioja Tempranillo 2012

Vintage 2012 / Breathtaking smell. Plums. Cherries. Vanilla. Cinnamon. Really charming. But then I sipped the wine and I got a hit in the face. Sóóó extreme powerful and with high bitters. The wine shows it potential but I should put it away for another 3 to 5 years. #rioja — 2 months ago

2012 vintage on 5.10.18
Not sure what is going on with this wine. Nice tempranilo nose makes you wanna taste. But in the mouth it seems all separate taste bullets. Not integrated. It was Decanted and tasted after 1 and after 24 hrs. Nothing changed.

@Martijn just keep trust. It will open and become beautiful. I have had wines that I thought were bad buys but bottles became awesome after 15 years (eg though mourvedre).

Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2013

Excellent #crianza #rioja blend - this might be the peak time for this 2013 vintage. Earthy, laid back dark fruit aroma, lots of acidity and a touch of spice with some robust tannins that trail into a pleasing finish. — 4 months ago

Bodegas Valdemar

Conde de Valdemar Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Vintage 2008 / Confession: I am really bad in recognising #tempranillo. So I ‘punish’ myself regularly to taste and drink it 🤨 Today it makes me really happy. A nice roof tiles colour, a smell with spices, warm cooked summerfruit, but above all: E L E G A N C E. Beautiful mouthfeel, satin, smooth. A wine you can easily underestimate, with finesse. Probably I would not recognise it as #rioja tasted blind, it is such a fine wine. Great effort of this Spanish winegrower. / technical: 85% tempranillo 10% graciano and 5% maturana. 30 months aging in French oak barrels. — 4 months ago
