The 2007 Numanthia is marginally more approachable but it, too, is a dense, layered, voluminous, structured wine. Given the requisite cellaring, it will eventually become both elegant and powerful. (JM)
Glass-staining purple. Exotic, pungent scents of cherry-cola, potpourri and white pepper, plus a sexy note of sandalwood. Very fresh in the mouth, with intense, floral-accented black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter and spicier with aeration. Blends vivacity and power smoothly, finishing with nervy mineral cut and a lingering note of spicecake. Like the Numanthia, this looks like it will drink well young and age well on its balance rather than power. (JR)
2007 Toro Termanthia Termanthia is a single-vineyard wine, selected from tinta de toro vines that are more than 100 years old. The wine made its name as a voluptuous red of enormous proportions; this vintage holds to the style, with more energy in its flavors than in the past. Vibrant acidity cuts through the wine's ripeness, infusing the tannins with nerve and tension. The structure manages to keep the intensity of the flavor from feeling overwhelming.
Stocky, dark and pure, with inky aromas of shoe polish, black fruits and charcoal. The palate is brawny and tannic, with saturated blackberry, espresso and bitter chocolate flavors. It's rowdy but also attractive and full of everything good including chocolate, spice and pepper on the finish. (MS)
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. (TM, Web only-2010)
