2007 Bodegas Numanthia Termanthia 14.5% Dark and heavy on the nose with a sweet layer of caramelly oak and spice that slowly receded to reveal a deep core of spicy, mineral laden black fruit that’s topped with suggestions of cigar wrapper, tomato leaf and spice cookies. Bright and assertive on entry with the cut of high acid and superbly polished tannins buffered by building layers of silky dark fruit. The tannins come on strong quite quickly, pushing down the black cherry and spice notes on the palate and really constraining the mid-palate. The cherry fruit is quite vivid on the backend and onto the long, elegant finish. The fruit here is surprisingly fresh and aromatic given the sheer power of this wine. This will require significant time in the cellar to blossom but very well balanced and super fresh with exotic fruit that is waiting to star. 95pts (95+75Bv)= 85pts

Roasted plum, bitter chocolate, tobacco and other interesting flavors in this. It's muscular, powerful and rich, but well balanced. Very focused flavors. My favorite tasted today. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 1/23/10

Fantastic nose full of sweet spicy black fruit with a rustic bit of barnyard notes. Full in the mouth and luscious, black olive and black pepper notes.

Round, gentle, and alluring nose. Balanced. In the mouth straightforward, rustic, and somewhat woody with firm acid and tannin and sweet and sour ripe fruit (strawberry, red raspberry, perhaps plum). Medium body and good weight in the mid-palate with a pleasantly sour tannic finish. Good food wine.

A terrific wine with many powerful flavors pushing around in the mouth, dominated by charcoal and tannins. Really interesting. I'd serve with seasoned meat. Well worth a try.

lots of structure and power with heaps of ripe dense fruit and earthiness. Not my usual style, but I'm not complaining; good stuff.

The 2007 Termes is a bit more elegant with its velvety texture, ripe tannins, and silky finish. It, too, has the ability to improve with 2ndash;3 years of cellaring, but can be enjoyed now. Bodegas Numanthia-Termes was sold by the Eguran family to Moet-Hennessey prior to the 2006 vintage. What this might ultimately mean for quality or style of the wine remains to be seen but there is no questioning the performance of the 2006 and 2007 vintages.

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.

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.


External Review

Deep ruby-red. Sexy aromas of dark berry preserves, cinnamon, clove, cured tobacco and anise. Round, fleshy, cherry-vanilla and dark chocolate flavors are enlivened by notes of baking spices and smoky minerals. Open-knit and gently sweet, displaying mineral tannins and finishing with very good lift and lingering chocolate and spice notes. This aged in 20% new French oak.

Blackberry fruit claims center stage in this powerful red, where it mingles with tobacco and coffee notes and plenty of smoky oak. Massive tannins give structure, but the fruit reemerges on the finish. Best after 2004.


External Review

This wine is made from 30-year old ungrafted Tinta de Toro vines, and cropped at a mere 22 hectoliters per hectare. It enjoyed malolactic fermentation as well as 20 months aging in French oak barrels (20% new). There are 1,000 cases of the USA. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet perfume of vanilla and black currant fruit. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with excellent purity, and light tannin in the mouth-filling finish.
