Bodegas Valdemar has been at the foreground of Rioja for the last few decades, building a reputation by simultaneously pushing the boundaries of what's possible in Rioja and preserving the world-famous region's vast traditions. Their Reserva is made of all estate fruit from Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa, painting a broad stroke picture of the tempranillo variety. The wine spent 19 months in French and American oak barrels before spending nearly a decade resting in bottle. This is Valdemar's most balanced and complex example of traditional, long-aged Rioja. It would behoove you to take the slow approach when pairing, with braised lamb as our highest recommendation. Also, burgers would be fine.
