Bodega Numanthia Termes Toro Termanthia 2010

Bodega Numanthia Termes Toro Termanthia 750ml 2010     
Sku: 1825382

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The award winning Termanthia is the ultimate expression of the best of vineyard plots in Toro with vines that over 120 years old and at an altitude of 800 meters. The hyper-concentrated fruit produces considerable aromatic complexity and shows tremendous power on the palate with plenty of fleshy roundness and as much elegance and precision as it does intensity. This is a wine that will keep very well, gaining even more complexity in bottle.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Apr 2013)
The 2010 Termanthia is broody and introspective on the nose, the aromatics almost cowering following the 2009. The palate is full-bodied and robust with good weight. This is perhaps the most powerful Termanthia that I have encountered with waves of ripe dark cherries, cassis and blueberry washing over the palate, fanning out towards a dense, peppermint-tinged finish. This is a lovely wine, although to be frank, I actually find more soul in the Numanthia.
