Numanthia 'Termanthia' Tempranillo 2006
The award winning Termanthia is the ultimate expression of the best of vineyard plots in Toro with vines that over 120 years old and at an altitude of 800 meters. The hyper-concentrated fruit produces considerable aromatic complexity and shows tremendous power on the palate with plenty of fleshy roundness and as much elegance and precision as it does intensity. This is a wine that will keep very well, gaining even more complexity in bottle.
The Numanthia estate is situated at Valdefinjas, a small village in the Zamora province. Numanthia was founded in 1998 by the Eguren familly, native of Rioja, in order to create the best wine of the Toro appellation.

This red is so thick and rich it's almost oily in texture, with exotic flavors of black fruit, game, dried herb and hoisin. Muscular tannins keep this structured, but give way to floral and graphite notes on the finish. A powerful wine with modern structure and distinctive character. Best from 2011 through 2020. 530 cases made.
Opaque purple, the wine offers up plenty of toast, scorched earth, truffle, mineral, and assorted black fruits. Saturated ruby. Explosively perfumed scents of blackberry, blueberry and dark cherry, complicated by a seductive array of Asian spices and vanilla.
