The availability of this product is limited and subject to change. Wine Advocate Review Rated 92+ 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.
Wine Tasting Notes Ripe cherry color, deep with a garnet rim. A wine with a very intense nose which is predominantly black, jammy fruits, balsamic notes and aromatic oak. With outstanding spicy aromas of clove and coffee, and hints of clayey minerals. On the palate it is powerful, concentrated and well-balanced. Secondary aromas of spice, black fruit and aromatic oak appear again. The feel in the mouth is velvety with excellent integration between fruit and wood.
