Desserts

I can't say that I am much of a dessert guy and, in truth, I only tasted each of these pies from Payard Bakery, but this picture was simply too good not to use!

I'm not a believer in dry red wine with sweet desserts, but it should be noted that the 2008 Numanthia handled this decadence quite well.

    The dinner and its accompanying wines sound so fabulous. You have made my mouth water! Oh, how I miss NYC. Hope things are improving in your neck of the woods. What are the price range on the Numanthia wines?

    Nice article - food and wine too - but labelling the wines 'Numanthia' seems a little misleading. The company's website makes a somewhat tenuous connection based on resistance - to Romans in the case of the town and to Phylloxera in the case of the grapes - but it seems a bit lame.

    Geographically Numancia (or Numantia), the place from which the name is derived is nowhere near the Toro region being in the province of Soria, north east of Madrid. The local football (soccer) team, CD Numancia takes its name from the Celtiberian settlement famed for resisting the Romans more than 2,000 years ago.

    The Toro region on the other hand is centred around Zamora, is actually closer to Portugal than it is to Madrid but is a successful wine producing area in its own right. Maybe I'm being a little pedantic but having lived in Spain for many years and knowing how fiercely proud communities are of their local produce it seems bizarre to name a wine after a town in another province several hundred kilometres away.
