Whoa--inky dark almost black in the glass. Fairly oaky aromas. Interesting--very little pereivable fruit on the tip of the tongue. You can "taste" the tannin, but there really is not much there. I think this wine is ageable, but I really don't think there will be much reward, there. US$23.99 about a year ago

Roasty, toasted nose of red, black and even some blue fruits. Some aromas also of dark chocolate and oak. Bold flavors of blackberry and currant with smoke and mineral, along with cedar, spice box, violets, espresso and blackberry. Savory and concentrated with firm tannin structure. Tart, strong acid up front. Big minerality. For me, the acid needs to relax a bit, perhaps in a couple more years in bottle. 3/3/12

A vibrant garnet color with flashes of violet. Nose full of ripe blackberries, currants and warm summer raspberries with hints of thyme and vanilla. Young assertive tannins are balance by a touch of chocolate on the long finish.

WS 91pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: This bold red matches ripe blackberry and currant flavors with toast, dark chocolate and oak notes. The tannins are firm and well-integrated, and the smoky mineral note is alluring. Drink now through 2016.

Opaque ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced dark berries and fresh flowers on the nose, along with notes of cola and star anise. Lush, palate-coating blackberry and candied cherry flavors are lifted by tangy acidity and gain sweetness with air. Fine-grained tannins add shape to the lush fruit flavors and carry through a long, spicy finish. Give this a bit of air if you plan to open it any time soon.

Produced from super low yields and boasting powerful concentration, Numanthia will not let you down. This wine comes from 70-100 year old Tinta del Toro vines (the local name for Tempranillo) and exhibits flavors of bittersweet chocolate and earth. Drink now, or hold for decades to come.

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.

The 2008 Termes offers up a sexy perfume of cedar, spice box, violets, incense, espresso, and blackberry. Savory, concentrated, and well-balanced, this flavorful effort will benefit from several years of additional cellaring but can be approached now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh and intense fruity aromas (raspberry, red currant, cherry) well integrated to a flower touch (violets, lavender) with a gentle spices & eucalyptus touch. The aromatic experience continues, the mouthfeel is silky and vibrant. After a persistent and intense attack, and explosion of fruit, the end of mouth is long and complex with spices, tobacco, raspberries and blackberries notes. Drink till 2025.
