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

Plummy currants and dark berry fruits. Very aromatic. Bold big and juicy and beautifully balanced. Solid gorgeous tempranillo.

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.

97+ 2007 Termanthia is, like the 2007 Numanthia, a bit more accessible than its 2006 counterpart. That is to say that it should begin to become civilized with a mere 6-8 years of cellaring and should offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 203... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Tempranillo wine from Toro in Spain. 2007 Bodega Numanthia Termes Termanthia 750ml

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.

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.

Dunkelbeerige, komplexe und betörende Nase. Zwetschgen und Kirschen, röstige und Gewürzaromen. Sehr weicher Auftakt, konzentriert mit kräftiger Struktur und sehr langem Nachhall.

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.

Muscular yet expressive, this Spanish red offers roasted plum, bitter chocolate, tobacco and hot stone notes. Thick, with rich, ripe tannins and just enough acidity to keep it lively. Best from 2010 through 2020.

This polished red has it all working mdash; ripe fruit, lavish oak, firm structure and a promise to open and develop with age. Notes of plum, mineral, smoke and spices should open up and develop with time. Best after 2005.

Tasting Notes:

Intense cherry red color with violet tones and well covered. Extremely rich and complex nose. It is a delicious combination of all of delicate black fruits and balsamic notes, minerals and spices. The deep and intense aroma, grows and develops in the glass with oxygen, becoming increasingly intense and complex. Wine with an impressive velvety attack, round and succulent, then the sense of volume on the palate grows further, concentrated tannins perfectly balanced. The finish is very long, persistent and complex with a wide variety of flavors assorted black fruits, cocoa, truffle, mineral and toast notes. Undoubtedly one of the greatest wines of Spain.
