2011 VALDEMAR RIOJA ESPECIAL

RETURNING CHAMPION FROM SPAIN!

$14.95 BTL./$80.00 6-PACK

Released at $35!  We found 14 cases of this Blue Chip Rioja that tasted like it had just been waiting for us.  Big, rich & absolutely Rioja!  This is from the 90 point review from the Wine Spectator.  “The 2011 Bodegas Valdemar Rioja Seleccion is a dark-colored, almost opaque, ripe and concentrated effort.   They are selling this very young (but still, it will not be released until around September 2015). It is quite heady with aromas of ripe plums, spices, lead pencil, ink and well-integrated oak. The palate is full-bodied, round and lush with plenty of dense and concentrated tannins that feel very young.”
