Ribera del Duero, 'Malleolus de Valderramiro', Bodegas Emilio Moro

Valderramiro is one of two single-vineyard offerings from Emilio Moro. It is made exclusively with grapes from the Pago de Valderramiro vineyard, which was planted in 1924. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is transferred to American oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation. It is then moved to new French oak barrels for 18 months of aging. Only 6,000 bottles are produced per vintage.

Review:
Deep violet. Potent aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, vanilla, fruitcake and woodsmoke, plus espresso and cola notes in the background. Sweet, seamless and broad on the palate, offering sappy blueberry, cherry-vanilla, mocha and spicecake flavors that are given focus and spine by a core of juicy acidity. Puts on weight with air while remaining lively, and finishes smoky and very long, with repeating vanilla and espresso notes and gentle tannic grip.
