Reviews and Ratings

Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted Dec. 20th 2017. Colour dark ruby red showing age. Legs thick on the glass suggesting higher alcohol. Bottle notes 14.5%. Aromas and flavours of complex berry, cherry, dried fig, tobacco and old delicious apple that has been sitting out in a room. Cured meat, herbs and flowers. Taste dry medium plus mouthfeel, mouthwatering, soft mature tannins. Alcohol is there but not overpowering. Finishes long and pleasant. I like this wine was very easy to drink a bottle goes fast. This is a nice winter wine in my opinion. Enjoy any season with robust beef or sausage. I had a fire roasted tomatoe pasta with mild and flavourful sausage and mushrooms. 100% tinta del pais (Tempranillo )
Convento San Francisco (2010) is a 100% medium-bodied Tempranillo from the Ribera Del Duero wine region. Fermented in stainless steel, the wine was then aged for 15 months in French (70%) and American oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
