The 2008 Numanthia spent 18 months in new French oak. It sports an inviting nose of pain grille, graphite, Asian spices, licorice, lavender, and blackberry. In the glass it reveals its voluptuous proportions, savory flavors, and outstanding volume. Give this lengthy Toro 5-7 years of cellaring and enjoy it from 2017 to 2028. Opaque violet color. Pungent, oak-spiced aromas of cherry compote, blackberry and flowers, with a smoky overlay. Lush and creamy in texture, with very good depth to its dark fruit and vanilla flavors. Supple tannins come on late and add grip to the long, smoky finish. This sexy wine will be drinkable on the young side. Both powerful and vibrant, this expressive red delivers a rich core of cassis and pomegranate, framed by toast, smoke, mineral and loam notes. A dark wine even austere, but has plenty of life. Drink now through 2016. 1,000 cases imported. -TM ** SOLD OUT **

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.

Vintage: 2002 09/23/2010

A Toro on steroids, the 2002 Termanthia emerges from a high altitude (2,625 feet), old vine Tempranillo vineyard that produced only one half ton of fruit per acre. Sadly, there are less than 125 cases produced. Its deep saturated ruby/purple color is... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Tempranillo wine from Toro in Spain. 2002 Bodega Numanthia Termes Termanthia 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

The combination of a unique terroir, an exceptional vineyard and the quintessential expression of the fruit, place Numanthia as one of the cult wineries of Toro region in Spain. Its outstanding wines will give you an intense and vibrant tasting experience.
