    ($60) Inky ruby. Complex bouquet of red and dark berries complemented by minerals, mint, anise and black pepper. Rich but focused on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and blackcurrant flavors, a silky texture and strong mineral snap. More elegant and precise than the Termes, showing tighter focus, clarity and finishing sweetness. For a rich wine, this is quite graceful.

    Muscular yet expressive, this Spanish red offers roasted plum, bitter chocolate, tobacco and hot stone notes. Thick, with rich, ripe tannins and just enough acidity to keep it lively.

    The 2006 Termes is inky black with an enticing perfume of mineral, spice box, leather, and blackberry. Succulent, concentrated, and impeccably balanced, it has enough structure to blossom for another 2-3 years but can be approached now.

    Cork disintegrated which made the drinking experience less than optimal but with more air this could have been more special (and perhaps some better filtration). Nearly pitch black, lots of minerals, spice box, loam, mocha and some blueberry pie. Nose was growing and tannins for this are in a good place, was definitely in its drinking window. Didn't have the complexity or |wow| factor that usually characterizes the Numanthia wines, but nothing short of a good effort. Drink soon. Very well structured, and probably peaking.

    Nose of ripe black fruit, plum, and some fun pirate spices. Dances on the palate like a lady with curves who knows how to move her assets. Big spanish wine, juicy rich black fruit melding with spices, pepper, and rustic tannin finish. Tasty!

    Very good Toro. This is a bit jammy, but it is still strong as ever! will go much longer and get softer

    Wine presented itself as dark ruby with long legs. Lots of fruit on the top end of this wine. Bing cherry, boysenberry, slight oak notes with a hint of licorice and spice. Tannins were mild and the finish ended slightly peppery. Took a chance and paired this with Saffron Risotto with Shrimp, Scallops and roasted red peppers. Pairing ended up to be perfect.

Bodega Numanthia Termes, S.L. (an estate owned by Dominio Eugren) produces super-premium wines such as Termanthia, Numanthia and Termes. The company has 40 hectares of vineyards. The estate was founded in 1998 and is based in Zamora, Spain. As of February 11, 2008, Bodega Numanthia Termes, S.L. operates as a subsidiary of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton.

Tempranillo is indigenous to Spain and is the country’s most-planted variety. It has thick skin and medium acidity and requires sufficient warmth to develop its signature aromas. In order to maintain acidity during growth to produce a well-balanced wine, the best sites must have a high diurnal temperature range. The best examples of these sites can be found in the high-altitude locations of La Rioja and Castilla y León. Here producers such as Artadi, Pingus, Numanthia-Termes, and Vega Sicilia make full-bodied, age-worthy wines with concentrated flavors of red cherry, tobacco, cured meat, and dried figs, as well as dill and vanilla from long periods in American oak.

Tempranillo’s savory flavors pair well with cured meats (particularly Spain’s famous Jamón Iberico de Bellota), roasted vegetables, barbeque-grilled meats, smoky dishes, corn-based dishes, and Mexican cuisine.
