Convento Oreja Ribera del Duero Crianza 2014

SALE!


Bright cherry color. On the nose you will find plenty of fruit aromas, well balanced as well as some reminiscences of spices that are appreciable. The oak presence gives elegant hints of black chocolate and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is very smooth and well balanced with the right amount of acidity. Fresh, long lasting and elegant. 

The wine went through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged 12 Months in French Oak barrels.  Before bottling, the wine was slightly filtered.

Review:

Based all on Tempranillo, the 2014 Crianza offers a touch of earthiness as well as ample black fruits (black cherries, currants), spice, and vanilla oak. It’s medium to full-bodied, has ripe, silky tannins, ample fruit, and a great finish as well as plenty of character. It’s a thrilling, incredibly satisfying Ribera del Duero to enjoy over the coming decade."

Review:

"Vivid ruby-red. Sexy, oak-tinged red berry and floral pastille scents pick up vanilla and licorice flourishes with aeration. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors that unfold and spread out steadily on the back half. Shows impressive clarity and spicy persistence on the lively finish, which is given shape by smooth, even tannins.- Josh Raynolds"

Aticus Cerrolaza Rioja Crianza 2014

Dark cherry color. Complex and intense aromas of juicy red and black fruit combined with vanilla and toffee. Fresh, ample and round in the mouth, well balanced and harmonious with fruit flavors and ripe tannins.

Abeja Merlot Columbia Valley 2014

This one-hundred-percent Merlot has really nice, bright red fruit, rose petals, and a richness on the nose. Flavors of plum, mountain strawberry and mocha come together with a balanced mouth feel and a long finish. Though it was a cooler vintage, I feel we have still captured the powerfully elegant style for which we are known.

Review:

"The 2014 Columbia Valley Merlot (100% Merlot) is a ripe, black fruit, plum, leafy herbs and mineral-scented effort that has medium to full-bodied richness, moderate mid-palate depth and tons of upfront charm. It's going to drink nicely through 2024."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #231, June 2017), 90 pts

"The aromas bring notes of dried herb, vanilla bean, wood spice and black cherry. The flavors are rich and luscious, supported by plump ripe tannins. The finish lingers."

The Monte Aman Estate
The Monte Amán S.L. bodegas and vineyards are situated in Castrillo Solarana. The municipal district and area belong to the region of Ribera del Arlanza where the tradition of elaborating wine and cultivating vines goes back to Roman times, in the III century, having vestige in the region of Lara and La Sierra de Covarrubias. In the Visigoth times, vineyards were cultivated in Quintanilla de las Viñas, but it is in the 9th and 10th centuries that the viticultural repopulation of Ribera del Arlanza is produced.
Our undertaking begins in 1985, with a constantly expanding grape plantation of 30has, consisting of 95% Tinta del país (Tempranillo) and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
In 1989 the Barbadillo García family decided to build the industrial premises with modern installations, with the aim of producing quality wines. Later on the age in American oak casks.

"Glass-staining ruby. Explosive, smoke- and spice-accented dark berry compote and floral scents are complicated by notes of spicecake and vanilla. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a refreshing touch of blood orange. Rich but energetic, with superb finishing clarity, slow-building tannins and lingering sweetness. - JR"
- Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (September 2013), 93 pts

"The 2009 Pago de Carrovejas El Anajon de la Cuesta de las Liebres (to give it its full name), is Tinto Fino blended with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Merlot and raised for 12 months in French oak, has a much better, more refined bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit, a suggestion of wild heather and cedar. The palate is full-bodied with good backbone and structure, while the crisp acidity keeps the graphite-tinged finish agile and focused. This is very impressive. Drink now-2017."

Bonny Doon Gravitas White Blend 2015

Bonny Doon Gravitas White Blend 61% Semillon, 35% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Gewürztraminer

"I loved the 2016 Tavel Le Crétacé, and this Grenache dominated beauty offers a big, ripe, even a touch reductive nose of black cherries, mineral water and wild strawberries. Elegant, yet rich and textured, it’s a terrific Rosé well worth drinking over the coming year or so. - Jeb Dunnuck"
