Winemaker Notes

Fresh and intense fruity aromas (raspberry, red currant, cherry) well integrated to a flower touch (violets, lavender) with a gentle spice & eucalyptus touch. The aromatic experience continues, the mouthfeel is silky and vibrant. After a persistent and intense attack, an explosion of fruit, the end of mouth is long and complex, with spices, tobacco, raspberry and blackberry notes. Drink until 2025.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Termanthia has better precision on the nose compared to the 2007, with more minerality coming through, and lifted black cherries entwined with lavender and incense. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, offering slightly honey red cherry fruit with dark plum and a hint of mulberry and creme de cassis. It is very well-balanced, although there is still some oak to be subsumed towards the finish. Drink 2017-2030.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Lush and classy, with earthy blackberry, hard spice, chocolate and lemon peel aromas. The palate is a mile deep and tannic, but it's not too hard or mean, and it tastes fantastic, with ripe blackberry, chocolate, spice and toast flavors. Complex and masculine, with tobacco and woodspice on the finish. Drink from 2012 through 2016.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
This polished red is like ebony, dark, fine-grained and solid. Powerful yet sleek, with a core of cassis, plum and fig flavors wrapped in toast, licorice, espresso and graphite notes, supported by muscular, well-integrated tannins. Drink now through 2018.

Numanthia, Spain
Numanthia Winery Video

Numanthia is located in the Toro region of Spain. Its four vineyards are located along the south bank of the Duero River.

The wine is named after a legendary Spanish city that was destroyed (after 20 yrs of resistance) by Roman legions. It is to Spain what the hilltop village of Masada is to Israel: a monument of history. Its 40 hectares of land are covered with an abundance of elements derived from the disintegration of Pliocene grit, clay and limestone.

Numanthia's first vintage was produced in 1998 and received a 95-point rating from Robert Parker. Since then, the Toro region has been producing wines that have begun to rival those of Spain's richest wine-producing regions of Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Priorat.

Spain's remote, high elevation wine zone between the regions of Bierzo and Ribera del Duero produces intense, full-bodied reds made from Tempranillo, locally called Tinta de Toro. This local variant has adapted to the region’s climatic extremes and recognizing its potential, top producers from Ribera del Duero and Rioja have invested heavily in its vineyards.

Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port wine.
