Numanthia Numanthia 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Opaque purple, it has a superb perfume of violets, mineral, wood smoke, blueberry, and blackberry. This leads to a firm, very structured wine with questionable balance. The finish is long but tannic... 92." WA 2/08.

Juicy over oaked, vanilla finish. Unremarkable.

Very tannic, acidic. Red cherry. Simple for the price. Try again in 20 years. $70

Seems like it was in the 18 dollar range when I bought it. I thought it was Merlot-esque, not great but good. Plenty of body.

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.

Inky ruby. Ripe, smoky aromas of blackberry and boysenberry preserves and cherry pie, with complicating notes of licorice and dark chocolate. Broad and jammy on the palate, offering sweet dark berry flavors and a slow-building cocoa quality. Distinctly rich but in no way ungainly; in fact, this is surprisingly lively for its volume. Finishes supple and sweet, with a repeating licorice note and smoky mineral and spice qualities. This year's version is more energetic than the 2006.

The 2005 Termanthia received the “200% new oak treatment” where it remained for 20 months. Opaque purple, the wine offers up plenty of toast, scorched earth, truffle, mineral, and assorted black fruits. Tightly wound and very backward, this powerful effort appears to be balanced but will need a decade of cellaring to become approachable. Not as much of a gamble as the Numanthia, it will require much patience by those who purchase it.

Chocolate and tar notes frame plum and cherry fruit in this juicy red. Bright acidity balances light, firm tannins, giving this fine structure and balance. Drink now through 2013.
