($145; from a single vineyard rich in marbly rocks and sand; planted with ungrafted vines in the second half of the 19th century) Saturated bright medium ruby. Superripe yet vibrant aromas of black raspberry, berry liqueur and licorice. Like an essence of berries in the mouth: huge, sappy and superconcentrated, with exotic, palate-saturating fruit and strong but perfectly integrated acids. Finishes with extremely ripe, harmonious tannins and mouthstaining length. The yield here was a half ton per acre, according to the U.S. importer, and the wine was aged in 200% new oak, having received a second pass in all Darnajou barrels. (Fine Estates From Spain, Dedham, MA)

A new offering, the 2000 Termanthia is a 3,800-bottle cuvee made from ungrafted vines planted in the second half of the 19th century. Yields were .5 tons of fruit per acre. A magnificent effort, it possesses huge body, an inky/purple color, and a gorgeous nose of creosote, creme de cassis, licorice, and vanilla. Extremely large and unctuously-textured, with chocolate and espresso notes evident in the flavors, this extraordinary effort shows what the new frontier of wine quality, in this case Spain's Toro district, can produce when a conscientious, no compromising producer sets out to do something world-class. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 15+ years.

This ambitious red shows international style in its titaniumlike structure and lavish use of new oak, yet its black fruit, mineral and sanguine flavors are rooted in its terroir. It's not flashy or sweet, but it's powerful and has the balance to age well. Not showing much fruit now, but give it time. 355 cases made.
