2007 Bodegas Numanthia-Termes "Termanthia" Toro

SKU #1086238 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Glass-staining purple. Exotic, pungent scents of cherry-cola, potpourri and white pepper, plus a sexy note of sandalwood. Very fresh in the mouth, with intense, floral-accented black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter and spicier with aeration. Blends vivacity and power smoothly, finishing with nervy mineral cut and a lingering note of spicecake. Like the Numanthia, this looks like it will drink well young and age well on its balance rather than power. (JR)  (9/2010)

93 points Wine & Spirits

 2007 Toro Termanthia Termanthia is a single-vineyard wine, selected from tinta de toro vines that are more than 100 years old. The wine made its name as a voluptuous red of enormous proportions; this vintage holds to the style, with more energy in its flavors than in the past. Vibrant acidity cuts through the wine's ripeness, infusing the tannins with nerve and tension. The structure manages to keep the intensity of the flavor from feeling overwhelming. This will benefit from at least five years in the cellar, to serve with veal braised in red wine.  (10/2010)

93 points Wine Spectator

 This alluring red packs a lot of flavor into a plush texture, with boysenberry, floral, cinnamon, licorice and smoke notes. Firm, fresh and balanced, with a long, focused finish. (TM)  (2/2010)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Dark, condensed and inky, with big, muscular aromas of charcoal, cassis liqueur, blackberry and tar. The palate is just lush enough despite being staunch and tannic, and the flavors of black fruit and cassis are luscious and sweet, with a bit of lemony oak adding zest. *Cellar Selection* (MS)  (12/2010)
