93 Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2005 Covento San Francisco is 90% Tempranillo and 10% Merlot with 50% of the Tempranillo vineyards dating from pre-phylloxera times. The wine was sourced from 46 different sites. Opaque purple-colored, it offers a superb bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, saddle leather, and blackberry. Opulent, full-bodied, rich, and concentrated, the wine has terrific depth and enough structure to evolve for at least 6-8 years. This lengthy wine will come into its own by 2018 and drink well through 2035." (02/08)
"The fruit is sourced from a variety of vineyard sites around Ribera del Duero. In Olivares del Duero and Qintanilla de Onesimo, the soils are calcareous. In Penafiel, the soils become sandier. Near Burgos (Gumiel de Mercado), farthest east, the sites are at their highest elevations and the soils are sandy with alluvial and marl components."
"Each site is selected for its altitude, latitude and soil composition. 50% of these vineyards are pre-phylloxera and have very old vines. A blend of 90% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) and 10% Merlot. Fermentation occurs in very small stainless steel vats, punched down twice daily by hand. The wine is then aged in French and American barrels for 15 months."
"Very deep in color with a nose of tobacco and black fruits. The palate shows tobacco, blackberry, anise, black cherry and clove flavors, with the animal overtones typical to the district. Excellent structure and a lingering finish." -Importer
"Javier Garcia Diez (Peter Sisseck's right hand for several years in Hacienda Monasterio) is proprietor and winemaker of this tiny, modern winery built inside a lovingly restored 14th century monastery in the fortress town of Penafiel. The vines run from 86 to 102 years of age, carefully balancing the region's three predominant soil-types, and are sourced from 46 different vineyard sites in Ribera del Duero." -Winery
