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."

A terrific Old Vine Zinfandel from a single vineyard and an epic vintage!
 
Wine Description:  The Gamba Old Vine 2012 Starr Road Ranch Zinfandel reveals an inviting dark ruby-purple hue in the glass. A fascinating nose weaves aromas of blackberry bramble and cherry vanilla with essences of cider spice and nutmeg. On the palate, the intense layers of juicy dark fruits such as a black cherry, velvety blackberry and flinty plum flavors offer a richness that fills the mouth with essence of roasted fig, and pleasingly lingers on the palate. The fruit is framed by an appealing lift of acidity and complimented by freshly toasted cocoa, caramel and spicy, mild tobacco leaf. Finally, the wine is accented by soft tannins and lead to a long, balanced finish that invites the next taste experience.

Pago de Carraovejas Ribera del Duero 2016

Pago de Carraovejas Crianza Ribera Del Duero 2016 is made from 90% Tempranillo, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot


The Pago de Carraovejas Ribera del Duero 2015 vintage marks a turning point in the history of the winery. From now on, the Crianza and Reserva are unified in this wine that focuses on the terroir and character rather than the time of aging. Its renewed label reflects the three key elements of this red: origin, soul and emotion. 


Pago de Carraovejas Crianza Ribera Del Duero is made with grapes grown in the Botijas River valley, and planted between 1988 and 2011. Our work over the last 30 years has been geared to handcrafted viniculture, that puts as much care as possible into the microclimate conditions and the details. We have placed particular attention on the maintenance of the soil by plant cover that already grows spontaneously. It allows us to develop the ecosystem of the valley, which we respect scrupulously, using organic fertilizer and sulfur as the sole basis of our viticulture.

Depending on which plot they come from and the time they enter the winery, the grapes may be deposited in cold chambers to prevent oxidation and preserve the aroma. We carry out a two-part selection: first on the vine, where we choose the bunches, and then on a belt in the winery, where we remove the grapes that do meet the necessary conditions. The grapes enter the winery and are transported with the assistance of gravity. The deposits are filled slowly and gently. Depending on the characteristics that we detected when tasting the grapes, we ferment them either in stainless steel deposits or French oak barrels. For years we have worked with our own yeast that has been isolated from the vines by our team. This work is also partly responsible for the Carraovejas character.
The wine was aged in barrels for around twelve months.


Review:

Intense graphite, orange peel, chocolate and blood orange with intense red-cherry essence. The palate has a very long, succulent feel with great flesh and freshness. Deep, powerful and focused. Drink or hold. -James Suckling 93 Points
