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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 **

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.
