The story: This little region contains some of the biggest names in Spanish wine, Vega Sicilia to name one. Just two hours away from Madrid in the desert, Valderiz exists in harmony with this harsh environment. The aim is to let nature, not winemakers, produce the best grapes possible. Oh... this was #26 on Spectators Top 100.
In your mouth: Have you ever eaten blackberry cobbler and wished wine tasted kind of like that? Enter, me! I have bundles of dark and lush blackberry, intermingled with graphite, coca nibs, fresh plums capped with espresso. I am not a wine to be taken lightly, nor will you forget me as the low acidity and bold tannins beg for continued investigation.
