Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Termes 2011 offers soft, dried red fruit and floral notes on the nose. On the palate, delicate spice and berried fruit (cherry, raspberry) with a slight earthy rusticity, medium body with balanced tannins and refreshing acidity on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

93 points Robert Parker: The project of importer Jorge Ordonez, the 2000 Numanthia (100% Tinta de Toro [Tempranillo] from 70-100-year old vines) was produced from meager yields of one ton of fruit per acre. It spent 19 months in new French oak, with malolactic in barrel, and neither fining nor filtration. This is a massive, dense ruby/purple-colored effort that needs 3-4 years to strut its stuff. Thick, juicy, and concentrated, it displays notes of creme de cassis, melted licorice, spice box, and earth. It is an impressive, pure, layered wine to drink between 2006-2017. (Feb 2003)
