For the 2011 Malleolus Ribera del Duero, the wine is 100% Tempranillo that is a nice deep purple color in the glass. The nose is somewhat fruity, with notes of blackberry and plum, balanced with some mint notes, and rich vanilla and tobacco aromas. The taste is really nice, with some bright fruit notes up front that transition to some wonderful green herbs, that transition to some vanilla and mint notes on the finish. The tannins are well developed, leading to a very nice, long dry finish that make this a very nice food wine.

The nose showed intense red berry, ginger, hints minerals, dark earth and woodland tones. On the palate, it was silky smooth with balanced acidity, ripe dark fruits and herbs accentuated by a hint of heat. The palate staining finish lasted long with blackberry and spice. Again, the alcohol peaks out a bit on the finish yet it’s not dramatic, resulting in a rich and provocative wine. (89 points)

Deep red color. On the nose some cherry, dark fruits and hints of vanilla. For the palate I pick up dark fruits along with a hint of coffee and vanilla. The tannins are there but not highly tannic. Nice medium finish. Should be a great food wine but also interesting on is own.

Ferratus A0 2011: Wow, serious wine but fun to drink. Wonderfully dry and an amazing nose.

Three and a half glasses



Tasting Notes:

Aromas of red and black berries with floral notes (violets), together with subtle touches of tobacco and vanilla provided by the aging in an unusual selection of oaks. In the mouth the wine is soft, ripe and appetizing, with properly polished, well-integrated but still apparent tannins. A well-structured wine with bite, volume and a good palate.
