  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    Glass-staining purple. An exotic and highly perfumed bouquet evokes candied dark berries, cherry, licorice, oak spices and potpourri. Pliant, palate-staining dark fruit flavors deliver an intriguing combination of power and energy, picking up spice and floral pastille qualities with air. Very smooth and seamless wine with strong finishing thrust and excellent persistence. I suspect that this will drink well soon.

    The 2008 Termanthia has better precision on the nose compared to the 2007, with more minerality coming through, and lifted black cherries entwined with lavender and incense. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, offering slightly honey red cherry fruit with dark plum and a hint of mulberry and creme de cassis. It is very well-balanced, although there is still some oak to be subsumed towards the finish. Drink 2017-2030.

    This polished red is like ebony, dark, fine-grained and solid. Powerful yet sleek, with a core of cassis, plum and fig flavors wrapped in toast, licorice, espresso and graphite notes, supported by muscular, well-integrated tannins.
