Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

Opaque violet color. Pungent, oak-spiced aromas of cherry compote, blackberry and flowers, with a smoky overlay. Lush and creamy in texture, with very good depth to its dark fruit and vanilla flavors. Supple tannins come on late and add grip to the long, smoky finish. This sexy wine will be drinkable on the young side.

Tasted like a younger, wilder version of its 2004 predecessor but for the first time the 2008 tasted like it was coming together. Same lush and rich berry flavors, framed by oak, coffee, some blood. Was definitely enjoying this - had some more rough edges compared to the 2004.

The 2008 Termes offers up a sexy perfume of cedar, spice box, violets, incense, espresso, and blackberry. Savory, concentrated, and well-balanced, this flavorful effort will benefit from several years of additional cellaring but can be approached now.

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.
