Winemaker's Notes

#2 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Always sells out in a flash, this little brother of big boys Numanthia and Termanthia. Big, powerful Tempranillo - always highly rated by the critics. Get some while you can.

Critical Acclaim

"Austere yet alluring, this powerful red is thick and tannic, yet reveals a core of blackberry, mineral, hoisin and graphite that's dense and pure. Monolithic now, but has depth and balance. Modern, but shows a real sense of place. Best after 2012. 4,000 cases imported."
96 Points

"Deep ruby. A deep, youthfully brooding bouquet offers dark cherry, blackcurrant, incense and suave oak spices. Spicy cherry and dark berry flavors show an exotic anise quality and slow-building sweetness. This gently tannic, chewy, extremely persistent wine finishes with echoes of oak spice and floral pastille, not to mention excellent vivacity."
93 Points

"The 2005 Termes was aged for 16 months in seasoned French oak. It exhibits a classy nose of cedar, mineral, spice box, and blackberry. Sweet, layered, and ripe, with tons of flavor, this balanced effort will evolve for 3-4 years and drink well through 2018."
