Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 98

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.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

($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)

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

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.

Wine Varietal: Tempranillo

Tempranillo is Spain's noble grape. Grown mostly in northern Spain, some of the best Tempranillo wine comes from the regions of Rioja and the Ribera del Duero. This grape enjoys cooler climates and is sensitive to pests and adverse weather conditions. While Tempranillo can be bottled alone, it is often blended with other Spanish grapes such as Grenache, Carignan, and more recently, Cabernet Sauvignon. Tempranillo is also grown in the Duero region of Portugal where the grapes are commonly blended to make Port. Tempranillo wines may be consumed young, but are regarded as being at their best when aged. There are a multitude of synonyms for Tempranillo depending on where it is grown. Typical descriptors for Tempranillo include berries, plum, tobacco, vanilla, leather, meat and herbs.
