Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($56) Deep ruby. Brooding, imploded nose features dark fruits with inky notes of licorice root, espresso, soy and tobacco. Seriously structured, chewy wine, packed with dense, sweet cherry and dark berry fruit and mineral tones. Finishes on a deep note of cherry liqueur, the firm, broad tannins adding to the impression of power. Very impressive.

This was the wine of the day, with rich powerful, sweet and expressive Tempranillo that only these old phylloxera resistant wines can produce. Dark, rich and opaque in the glass, it continued to open up over the 4-5 hours since it was opened. Begs for red meat. Blueberry, cassis coffee, and here the oak was in full swing but in no bad way. Not sure if 2003 was remarkable for the vintage but this wine might outshine anything I know of from that region. I can still taste it in my mouth the next day.

pepper and tar is what I get in this pleasant bold bottle. Numanthia is always the good way to go.

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.
