Wine Description

A vivid, intense nose of espresso roast, pain grille, sweet black cherries, and creme de cassis is followed by a full-bodied, intensely-concentrated, rich, well-delineated, moderately structured.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Bright cherry red colour with reddish edge. Medium-high robe. In the nose, it shows a great intensity. Aromas of red fruit and touches of black fruit, mineral notes, fine toasted hints of its ageing, floral aromas and soft spiced notes. In the mouth, this wine is structured and has a great acidity. Very intense and tannic. Very long finish, aftertaste of ripe fruit and very smoked at retro-olfaction.

    "The 2003 Numanthia was fashioned from yields of one ton of fruit per acre (from a clone of Tempranillo that often has the highest polyphenols of any Tempranillo clone). This cuvee is made from 70- to 100-year-old vines planted at a 2,300 foot elevation, which no doubt accounts for the freshness in this massively rich, intense red. A vivid, intense nose of espresso roast, pain grille, sweet black cherries, and creme de cassis is followed by a full-bodied, intensely-concentrated, rich, well-delineated, moderately structured, pure red that can be drunk young or cellared for a decade."
