The 2002 Termes was Wine Spectator #3 WOTY.
Lying west of Ribera del Duero, Toro has become more widely known since a quality revival began there in the 1980s. Numanthia-Termes, one of the leading estates, makes two other wines in addition to the value-priced Termes: the main-label Numanthia and the high-end Termanthia. This estate-bottled wine is made from a clone of the Tempranillo grape, known in the Toro region as Tinto de Toro. The vines, some grown on ungrafted roots, are more than 30 years old. Brothers Miguel and Marcos Eguren own the estate. 2,000 cases made.
