Convento San Francisco Ribera del Duero 2004
This tiny, modern winery is built inside a 14th century monastery. Javier Garcia Diez, who was Peter Sisseck’s right hand for several years at Hacienda Monasterio, is the proprietor and winemaker. This tempranillo is medium-bodied, with sweet cherry, candied plum, tobacco, and roasted coffee flavors. This is an old school Spanish red.
