2014 Convento Oreja Crianza Ribera del Duero - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"I keep being impressed by the wine I taste from Convento Oreja, in this occasion the 2014 Crianza, a very honest and fairly-priced Ribera del Duero, pure Tempranillo (Tinta del País) from 16-year-old vines fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in new French barriques for one year, during which time the wine was racked twice. There is very nice ripeness and integrated oak, and the wine transmits a sensation of harmony and balance, with nuances and some incipient complexity. The palate is also quite balanced and elegant, with some oak flavors, but nothing compared with what you can find in many wines from the region. It's supple and quite tasty. A superb crianza, with subtlety and power. Very good value too. 21,400 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2016. - Luis Gutierrez"
