Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's 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.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Malleolus is sourced from 25- to 75-year-old vines aged for 18 months in new French oak. It has a rather predictable nose with that veneer of glossy, vanilla-tinged oak and yet you cannot deny that it is well-defined and maintains good freshness, with the fruit suggesting it will meld together with time. The palate is ripe and voluptuous with sensual black cherries, blueberry and layers of creamy oak on the finish. Although it needs to develop more individuality through its bottle evolution, it is undeniably very well-crafted and will please those who love opulent Ribera del Duero wines"
92 Points

"Opaque ruby. Highly nuanced aromas of cherry compote, smoky minerals, vanilla and candied flowers. Offers seductively sweet red and dark fruit and floral pastille flavors, with exotic floral tones and sweet oak in the background. This powerful yet lively wine finishes with excellent thrust and supple tannins."
92 Points

"Bright cherry, fresh herb and vanilla flavors mingle in this solid red, with accents of cola and earth. Features firm tannins, lively acidity and good balance. Should flower with time"
90 Points

"As usual, Malleolus hits with a ton of oak, ripeness and hickory. The palate is thick, tannic and bullish, while oaky flavors of bacon, blackberry, vanilla and butter finish toasty and heady. This is a distinct wine; it’s defined by ripe fruit, hard tannins and plenty of wood."
