Wine Advocate Review
Rated 93
The 2016 Malleolus is a generous old-vine Tempranillo fermented with yeasts they have selected and aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, showcasing the ripe and deftly oaked style of the house. There is more freshness and better balance here compared with 2015; it's juicy, a little chewy and with fine-grained, abundant tannins. There is contained ripeness and moderate acidity. As with many of the wines here, I felt it could do with a little more acidity. Drink 2018-2023.

Wine Tasting Notes
Malleolus stands out from the very first moment by its intense color. In the nose it is also intense, opulent and fragrant, emphasizing a base of varietals enriched with nuances of noble wood, balsamic and spices. In the mouth it is powerful, silky and enveloping with a long and persistent finish.
