  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($48) Good saturated ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of blackberry, violet, espresso and bitter chocolate. Suave and smooth in the mouth, with firm flavors of blackberry, violet and licorice. More perfumed and vibrant than the Termes. Finishes with big, toothdusting, fine-grained tannins and excellent length and lift. More refined than the excellent 2000 bottling.

    Purplish crimson. Very, very sweet and floral nose. Almost over the top. Great whack of sweet fruit is followed by peppery oak corset. Still very young and awkward. Lots of acidity and tannin. Velvet start, but metal wool finish.

    The flagship offering, the 2001 Numanthia, is fashioned from a 70-100 year old Tinta de Toro vineyard planted at a 2300 foot elevation. After a 28 day maceration, the wine undergoes malolactic in barrel, is aged 19 months in new French oak, and is bottled without fining or filtration. The spectacular, opaque purple-colored 2001 offers an explosive nose of melted licorice, barbecue smoke, blackberries, creme de cassis, camphor, and graphite. Full-bodied with gorgeously rich, concentrated fruit, a layered texture, and tremendous purity, it can be drunk young, but should hit its prime in 1-2 years, and last for 10-15.

    This ambitious red shows plenty of extraction, with ripe fruit and toasty oak fighting through gripping tannins. It's exuberant, but needs time to harmonize and show the full range of its flavors.

    Delicious! Chocolate, cedar, plus plenty of tannins and fruit to carry this further.

    I agree, now's the time to drink these, but this has lost nothing in terms of power and it just a beast of a wine with smoke, oak and subtle sweet flavors wrapping blueberry and coffee. Perfect for the roast of beef we had. Not sure how much better this one will get, but am really psyched for the 2004!
