Bodegas Emilio Moro Tempranillo "Malleolus" Ribera del Duero 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Aus bis zu 75-jährigen Tinto-Fino-Reben gekeltert. 2008 war im Ribera del Duero ein mustergültiger Jahrgang. Im Frühling fiel genügend Regen, der Sommer war wie gewöhnlich heiss und der Herbst war tendenziell kühl und trocken, sodass die Trauben optimal heranreifen konnten. Das Resultat ist ein grosser Tinto Fino, der Kraft, Komplexität und Charme vereint.

Very fresh and lively on the nose with immediate notes of blueberry pie, violet pastille, light sage and eucalyptus. This smells rather sophisticated with a gentle perfume-like note of vetiver, vanilla flowers and toasty spices. On entry, this shows flashes of gamy, campfire flavors that are quickly subsumed by clear, earthy wild raspberry fruit flavors and nuanced notes of dried herbs, a hint of green anise seed and dry, toasty oak notes. The tannins here are superbly managed and firm yet discreet. Acidity lends a juicy edge to the increasing, distinct wild berry fruit. The finish is fairly long with a nice herbal seed note punctuating the slightly candied boysenberry fruit. There's a lot of fruit here but it's not as fruity as it sounds, with lovely grace notes of leather and earth grounding the palate. Rather sophisticated on the palate as well. 91pts

Smooth, balanced, delightful, with fruit surrounded by gripping tannins, a right level of acid, and finish of mineral-metal and fruit. Grown in limestone soils.

Fresh vanilla and licorice aroma - very barrel driven, with some moderate notes of eucalyptus. The body approaches with well rounded and sumptuous plum and black fruit. The finish is very smooth.

Typical tempranillo nose, fruit-forward with a hint of smoke, vanilla, and leather. Well-structured palate, black cherries. Medium tannins on the finish. This is a wonderful "sipper" and would serve as a great introduction for someone who has never tried tempranillo. Paired nicely with seasoned flank steak. Emilio Moro has another hit. 88 points.

Offene Nase, reife, schwarze Beeren, Oliven, Lederaromen sowie gut integrierte Holznoten. Am Gaumen herrlich mundfüllend, dicht und mit einer feinen Tanninstruktur. Ein genialer Klassiker und ein perfekter Speisebegleiter.

The 2008 Malleolus comes from older vines and spent 18 months in French oak. It gives up a promising nose of pain grille, mineral, espresso, violets, and blackberry. This is followed by a tannic, savory offering with just enough fruit for balance. It... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2008 Moro, Bodegas Emilio Malleolus 750ml

The 2008 Malleolus comes from older vines and spent 18 months in French oak. It gives up a promising nose of pain grille mineral espresso violets and blackberry. This is followed by a tannic savory offering with just enough fruit for balance. It will benefit from 2-3 years of additional cellaring to melt some of the tannins and will drink nicely through 2023.
