Editorial Reviews for Toro Do Termanthia
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
Smoky and dark on the nose with notes of grilled nuts, cocoa, vanilla, licorice, charcoal and a touch of tar accenting slightly spicy dark wild black berry fruit. On entry this is surprisingly restrained with tannins that cover the gums but a clear mid-palate that reveals rich earthy raspberry fruit topped with nuanced notes of carob and tobacco. This is still quite young but with air it already reveals fine purity of fruit and balance, though you have to love tannin at this point to appreciate this wine. The finish has fine tannins and brisk acids supporting that earthy, dark raspberry fruit through the moderately long, lightly spice tinged and faintly chocolatey finale. 90pts (90+80Bv)= 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
I finally got to drink this wine after it was opened for a few days, and it's very good: smooth and not too hot. Unfortunately, the finish is not very long or rewarding (at least not for me), but the wine keeps begging me to take another sip anyway.
Fantastic deep earthy palate full of rich blackberry fruit, dark chocolate and a bit of heat. Palate is full bodied and has a lot of smoky character coming from a good bit of oak, nice tannic structure to support, and a dusty blueberry finish.
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.
bold jammy fruit spices, dark fruit components linger on the nose with a back bone of cedar wood. Palate also filled with dark berry fruit, smooth and wonderful
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.
External Reviews for Toro Do Termanthia
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.
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
Termes shows Toro's quintessential fruit: Ripe but fresh, with velvety texture and lively structure, this wine leaves a general impression of balance and elegance.
Toro Termanthia hat ein intensives Kirschrot. Sein kräftiges Aroma besitzt einen starken Ausdruck der Rebsorte mit Mineraltönen und feinen Röstnoten; Schokolade und Kaffee. Im Gaumen ist er kräftig, fleischig und voll.
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 2–3 years of cellaring, but can be enjoyed now.
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.
Food Pairings for Toro Do Termanthia
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.
