The 2004 Malleolus de Valderramiro has the deepest color aside from the 2009. Dense, rich, powerful but also elegant, this is a suave offering that will also require another 10+ years of cellaring. It admirably reflects the greatness of the 2004 vintage in Ribera del Duero.

Emilio Moro’s Malleolus de Valderramiro is sourced from an 85-year-old Tempranillo vineyard of the same name. Alcoholic fermentation is done with native yeasts after which the wine goes through malolactic in American oak. It is then aged for 18 months in new French oak. Drink: 2013 - 2032

The 2004 Malleolus de Valderramiro is sourced from a single 80+-year-old vineyard. It was barrel fermented and aged in new French oak for 18 months. Purple-colored, it is remarkably fragrant with elements of violets, roasted blackberries, spice box, smoke, and black currant jam. Full-bodied and structured, it is opulent and richly fruity with a long, pure finish that goes on for nearly one minute. This promising effort will have much more to say after 6-8 years of additional cellaring. It should have at least a 25 year lifespan. Drink: 2013 - 2032
