Sipping Fine Wine

The winery is located near the town of Peñafiel, and its name Oreja (ear) comes from the fact that Convento is located on a bend in the Duero river. This exagerated bend/oxbow is referred to as an oreja or ear shaped. Deep red with purple edges and aromas of red fruits and spice. The palate shows plum and Berry flavors with vanilla spice, cacao and espresso beans. Well balanced soft tannins give way to nice medium+ finish.

Marvelous. Black cherry and leather aromas. Silky. Just enough tannins to pair well with a steak. Ready to drink but another year or two would make this a spectacular wine.

Woaw caramel. Smells like an old Bourbon. Spicy and sticky, full-bodied with seemingly a lot of residual sugars. To sum up: lighyly heavy and subtlety concentrated. Shiny!
