Convento Las Claras Ribera del Duero 2011 Wine Review (NW)
Dark berries, licorice, and spice on the nose
Full bodied on the finish
Juicy, dense finish of espresso and dark berries with moderately firm tannins
Here's a modern, flavorful style of Tempranillo from the Ribera del Duero region in Spain. It really packs a punch of flavor on a moderately tannic core.
I grabbed several bottles at $15, marked down from $18. At this price, it's easy to recommend to big red wine drinkers. Raise a glass!
