Emilio Moro Ribera del Duero "Malleolus de Valderramiro" 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Plum, cocoa, mineral, sanguine and cola flavors mingle in this rich red, whose plush texture conceals a powerful structure, deep and balanced, with a finish that lingers and expands into spice, floral and earth notes. Distinctive and intriguing, this is still reserved and has much more to give." - Wine Spectator

After two marginal vintages (2007–08), this is Emilio Moro and Ribera del Duero at their finest. This Tinto Fino delivers a huge wave of mocha, blackberry, tobacco and coffee aromas in front of a dense and layered palate that’s packed with prune, chocolate, cassis and blackberry flavors. A savory, richly textured finish overflowing with coffee, chocolate and smoky flavors seals the deal. Drink from 2015–2022. - M.S. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 96 Points Plum, cocoa, mineral, sanguine and cola flavors mingle in this rich red, whose plush texture conceals a powerful structure, deep and balanced, with a finish that lingers and expands into spice, floral and earth notes. Distinctive and intriguing, this is still reserved and has much more to give. Drink now through 2024. 600 cases made. –TM - Wine Spectator Magazine 95 Points The 2009 Malleolus de Valderramiro comes from 85-year-old vines and is matured for 18 months in new French and American oak. It received a eulogy from my predecessor in barrel, and although my own appreciation is more tempered, I still regard it as a stupendous wine. The oak is seamlessly integrated on the stylish nose that offers hints of mocha and dark chocolate to complement the brassy bold black fruit – creme de cassis and blueberry jam. The palate is full-bodied and just a little cloying on the entry. It is decadent, structured and voluminous, a bold intense wine with mouth-lacquering luscious, almost viscous fruit on the finish with fresh dates and cassis. It is uncompromisingly primal and unyielding at the moment and deserves several years in bottle. Drink 2018-2030. - Robert Parker 93 Points (raised in new French and American oak): Glass-staining ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed bouquet evokes black and blue fruits, potpourri, incense and smoky minerals. Juicy, penetrating and seamless, offering sweet blueberry and boysenberry flavors lifted by tangy minerality. Finishes sweet and very long, with resonating floral character and supple, even tannins. - Stephen Tanzer 93 Points

Vintage: 2005 11/19/2013

The 2005 Mallelous de Valderramiro is 100% Tempranillo sourced from a single 85-year-old vineyard with tiny yields. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in new American oak with batonnage followed by aging in new French oak for 18 months. Inky purple-hued, the wine has stunning aromatics, kinky and complex. Notes of mineral/slate, pencil lead, espresso, wild blueberry and blackberry lead to a layered, opulent wine with superb concentration and great length. Give it 6-8 years of additional cellaring and drink it through 2030. Glass-staining ruby. High-pitched red and dark berry aromas are brightened by exotic Asian spices and minerals. Powerful raspberry and blackberry flavors are sweetened by coconut, vanilla and mocha but theres a buffering bitter licorice quality. Supple tannins build on the long, pliant finish, which leaves a cherry-cola flavor behind. Very sexy wine.
