A somewhat shockingly elegant Tempranillo (though I’ll admit most of my experience with the grape is in the heavier wines from Rioja). Deep red in the glass, with some trademark dark fruit. Certainly the tannins are there, but with a bit of air and a chill this is really quite good. Great pairing with pork chops on the grill. — 24 days ago
Delicious! Light tasting but heavy fruit- don’t let the dark color throw you. Completely different from a Provence rosé, but in a good way. — 7 days ago
Founded by Emilio Moro, born in Pesquera de Duero. Wine made from vineyard grapes, 25 & 75 years old, from Camino Viejo estate. Malleolus is a Latin word meaning “small hammer or mallet” used in planting & “majuelo” Spanish for “young vine” a traditional way of referring to a vineyard in Pesquera del Duero. Deep Ruby berry fruit aromas with espresso & smoky notes. Blackberry & cherry with vanilla spice on full ripe tannins just starting to soften. Well balanced, complex, lingering with earthy finish. Nice! — a month ago
Very good Ribera. 2014 vintage. Just getting better with every year in the cellar!
