Cherry red color. Balsamic, liquorice, spicy on smell. Very long, high acidity, silky, persistent. A lot of wood.

Winery is family-run & has links with the wine world going back 3 generations. Founded by Emilio Moro who was born in Pesquera de Duero, a prominent Spanish wine area. Made from grapes of old vineyards, between 25 and 75 years old, from the Camino Viejo estate. Malleolus is a Latin word meaning “small hammer or mallet” used in planting, and “majuelo” Spanish for “young vine” a traditional way of referring to a vineyard in Pesquera del Duero. Deep red subtle fruit aromas with espresso and smoky notes. Blackberry & cherry with vanilla spice on full lush tannins needing more time. Well balanced, complex, lingering with earthy finish.

A rich medley of mature berries integrated with savory spices. The wine opened quickly which added to our enjoyment of the bottle along Spain’s northern coast, but not at the expense of an overall complexity that remained with the wine. This wine is ready for consumption now IMO.

👃🏻 buena potencia, muy alcohólico, fruta negra madura, chocolate, madera tostada, ahumados potentes 👄 entrada golosa, estructurado, el tanino bastante controlado y un final muy agradable aunque cargado de madera. 👁 capa y densidad media alta.

Served blind, I thought that an oaky Zin had been poured... quality wise, this IS very good, but stylistically its best-before-date has passed.

Fully developed and hanging in there, though could use some punch in the mid-palate. Super with my pizza.
