Description

This alluring red packs a lot of flavor into a plush texture, with boysenberry, floral, cinnamon, licorice and smoke notes. Firm, fresh and balanced, with a long, focused finish. Drink now through 2017.- WS93

Dark, concentrated and inky, with big muscular aromas of charcoal, cassis liqueur, blackberry and tar. The palate is just lush enough despite being staunch and tannic, and the flavors of black fruit and cassis are luscious and sweet, with a bit of lemony oak adding zest. Drink from 2011 through 2015. - WE92

Extremely rich and complex, the nose is showing a multitude of ripe red and black fruits (redcurrant, raspberries, cassis, blackberries) with notes of liquorice, truffle, balsamic and spices (cedar, nutmeg and black pepper), all perfectly integrated. The intense aromas evolve nicely in the glass, slowly opening up to more intense and complex notes.

On the palate, Termanthia is an incredible expression of the Toro terroir which requires patience in its appreciation. First the wine offers an impressively round, velvety and simply delicious mouth feel. Then the sensation of power and strength grows even more perfectly balanced with concentrated, firms and silky tannins, offering an experience of both weight and liveliness on the palate. The finish is extremely long and complex with a wide range of aromas, including dark fruits, chocolate, truffle, mineral and toasted notes. - Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Numanthia is located in the Toro region of Spain. Its four vineyards are located along the south bank of the Duero River. The wine is named after a legendary Spanish city that was destroyed (after 20 yrs of resistance) by Roman legions. It is to Spain what the hilltop village of Masada is to Israel: a monument of history. Its 40 hectares of land are cove96 with an abundance of elements derived from the disintegration of Pliocene grit, clay and limestone.

Numanthia's first vintage was produced in 1998 and received a 95-point rating from Robert Parker. Since then, the Toro region has been producing wines that have begun to rival those of Spain's richest wine-producing regions of Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Priorat.
