A Night with Numanthia

Delicious food and wonderful wines make for a memorable evening


« Prev Next » 4 of 10

The stars of the night, of course, were the wines of Numanthia. These are powerful examples of old vine Tinta de Toro (a clone of Tempranillo from Spain's Toro region) that capture the depth, complexity and richness of this distinctive variety, all while exhibiting a suppleness and elegance that few have achieved.

Jose C. Melendez Jr., the chef at BOA, was given the challenge of pairing his cuisine with three of Numanthia's wines. He did it, pulling out all the stops to create both classic and innovative pairings.

The Line Up:

2009 Termes

2008 Numanthia

2008 Termanthia

    Sorry to say I could not make it. This report really makes me (and Peggy to whom I sent the link) sorry.
