Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

#87 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2013

Vibrant and fruity, Termes stands out for its lively character. This wine perfectly expresses the Toro region. Bright cherry-red in color with light purple tones. The aroma is very elegant and lively aromas, rich and complex. Fresh, fruity notes (black fruits, raspberry, dark sherry), nicely integrated with spices, tobacco & toasted aromas (vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon). The palate has a silky texture, concentrated, well structured and very elegant. The finish is long and complex, with spices, tobacco, raspberries and blackberries notes.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a ripe, dark but balanced Toro with pastry, prune, blackberry and vanilla aromas. The palate is fiercely tannic on the surface but not overly hard at the foundation. Flavors of burnt toast, blackberry, spice, licorice and chocolate finish warm, toasty and dark, with echoes of ripeness and hard tannins. Drink now through 2018."
92 Points

"Inky ruby. Powerful smoke-accented aromas of dark berry preserves, licorice, mocha and candied flowers. Plush and seamless on the palate, offering juicy blackberry and boysenberry flavors and a sexy floral quality. A vanilla accent adds sweetness to the finish, which clings with excellent tenacity and focus. I also had the chance to retaste the 2009 Numanthia and 2009 Termanthia this summer, wines that I rated 92 and 94 points, respectively, last year. While the Numanthia has started to close up a bit (aeration helps a lot to bring out sappy dark berry and floral character), the Termanthia is simply stunning right now. It shows superb depth as well as energy, offering an array of black and blue fruit flavors and a bracing jolt of refreshing acidity. I suspect that it will shut down at some point soon but for now it's a real thrill to drink."

Easily one of my favorite reds....EVER!!! So hard to describe because it's literally a flavor bomb in your mouth! Bone dry with tangy berry flavors, a subtle hint of sweetness, wood, minerals, and a lovely earthy, musky note that adds to the savory finish. We serve this at my bar and it's definitely one that you will have an opinion about...you either really love it or you hate it. I LOVE IT!!! Can't really tag it with a style because it is big & bold, but smooth...it is earthy, but not really spicy and it is fruity, but not a light wine by any means. ENJOY!!!!
