Winemaker Notes

This intensely complex wine showcases several aromatic layers: first are notes of fresh, red fruits including strawberries and cherries which are accompanied by flavours of cream pastries. The nose goes on to reveal light balsamic touches including hints of cedar all of which are perfectly integrated with sweet spices such as cardammon and cinnamon and nutty flavours includingtoasted almonds. An intense, robust and nervy wine displaying incredible structure. Impressive fruit expression, sweet, well ripened tannins, leading to a meaty, viscous mouthfeel. A long and persistent finish with an extremely wide range of fruity aromas as well as toasted and spicy notes, highlighting the complexity andhandcrafted character of this wine.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This modern wine is blocky, minty and dark as night on the bouquet. In the mouth, it’s lush but with some hardness to the tannins. Flavors of blackberry, lemon peel and coffee are sultry and dark, while the finish overflows with toast, licorice, spice and chewiness.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Numanthia comes from La Jara, El Pego and Vanialbo from 60- to 100-year-old vines and it is matured for 21 months in new French oak. It has a rounded, generous bouquet of raspberry coulis, wild strawberry and vanilla pod that is well-defined and not over-powering. The palate is medium-bodied with a spicy, elegant entry. The tannins are quite fine and lend the 2009 exceptional symmetry and focus. There is a dash of white pepper and graphite underpinning the dark berry fruit, with good structure towards the opulent, hedonistic and ebullient finish. Drink 2015-2025.

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.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
