Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

The 2008 Termanthia is a glass-coating opaque purple color. It reveals an already complex bouquet, rich, ripe fruit with underlying structure, and a more forward personality than is found in a great year such as 2004. This loaded effort will benefit from 6-8 years of cellaring and will offer a drinking window extending from 2017 to 2033.

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.

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.
