  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

    The bouquet of the 2004 Termanthia is very intense but not overpowering, with notes of black currant, menthol, peppermint, kirsch and just a touch of eau-de-vie. The palate is full-bodied with dense, firm, quite robust tannins. It is very powerful with layers of spicy red berry fruit laced with cloves and Provencal herbs. There is still some oak to be subsumed towards the finish, which has mouth-gripping tannins. It is still very youthful, although after almost ten years, we have to wait and see what secondary delights it may muster. This is not a perfect wine, not in my book. But it is a great Toro, even if I blaspheme by suggesting that it will be ultimately be out-performed by the following vintage. Drink 2016-2025+

    ($201) Inky purple. Pungent cherry, cassis, licorice, violet and graphite on the nose, with a peppery undercurrent. Concentrated dark fruit flavors offer outstanding clarity and thrust, with sweet cherry and blackberry flavors joined by candied licorice, zesty minerality and bitter chocolate. Fine-grained tannins add structure and focus on the strikingly long, youthfully bitter finish. With air the fruit turned darker and gained power, but at no expense to vivacity. Needs time.

    Full, glossy, dramatic and sweet. Rich and round with dusty tobacco notes on the finish which stops the wine from being too sweet. Nice appetising kick. Finishes just a little suddenly.

    Powerful yet graceful, this red shows concentration, intensity and elegance. Oak is dominant now, with luscious mocha, dark chocolate and toasty flavors, but there's plenty of ripe black fruit underneath. Massive tannins are so well-integrated the wine feels plush, and lively acidity keeps this balanced. 125 cases imported.
