About This Wine:

100% Tinta de Toro.

Extremely rich and complex, the nose is showing a multitude of ripe red and black fruits (redcurrant, raspberries, cassis, blackberries) with notes of liquorice, truffle, balsamic and spices (cedar, nutmeg and black pepper), all perfectly integrated. The intense aromas evolve nicely in the glass, slowly opening up to more intense and complex notes.

On the palate, Termanthia is an incredible expression of the Toro terroir which requires patience in its appreciation. First the wine offers an impressively round, velvety and simply delicious mouth feel. Then the sensation of power and strength grows even more perfectly balanced with concentrated, firms and silky tannins, offering an experience of both weight and liveliness on the palate. The finish is extremely long and complex with a wide range of aromas, including dark fruits, chocolate, truffle, mineral and toasted notes.


Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Subtle and perfumed with violet, stone, dark fruit and mushroom. Full body, firm and linear tannins and a long and rich finish. Powerful. Flashy and stylish. Drink or hold." (July 2015)

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Rooty blackberry, cassis, vanilla and cola aromas are vintage Numanthia. So is a saturated, tannic palate that's deep and dense. Baked blackberry is the lead flavor, and that's matched by espresso and chocolate. Heat and ruggedness need to be resolved on a rich, powerful, chocolaty tasting finish. Drink through 2020." - MS (Aug 2015)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"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." - Neal Martin (Apr 2013)

2004 RECEIVED 100 POINTS FROM ROBERT PARKER!

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2009 vintage):
"The 2009 Termanthia has a fragrant bouquet of dark berries, mulberry, juniper and lavender, with vanilla-tinged notes emanating from the oak. The palate is full-bodied with firm but quite fine tannins, plus a fine sense of symmetry. It is very sweet with plenty of candied orange peel and even a hint of molasses towards the succulent, fleshy, slightly spicy finish. This is sleek and sensual and deserves five years, perhaps more, in the cellar. Drink 2017-2030." - Neal Martin (Apr 2013)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2009 vintage):
"This powerful red shows structure and grace, with massive tannins supporting ripe fruit braced by lively acidity and plenty of oak. Plum, cassis, black pepper, anise and mineral notes mingle in a sleek, firm texture. A big wine in the modern style. Drink now through 2025. 500 cases made." - TM (Feb 28, 2013)

94 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2009 vintage):
"Inky purple. A heady, complex bouquet evokes blackberry and boysenberry preserves, smoky Indian spices, cola and mocha. Lush, palate-staining dark fruit flavors show liqueur-like depth and power, with notes of star anise and candied violet adding complexity and lift. The sweet, seamless finish clings with impressive authority and leaves smoke and floral pastille notes behind. Shows the richness of the vintage to full advantage but there's absolutely nothing heavy about this wine, which clocks in at an unsurprising 15% alcohol." - Josh Raynolds (Sep 2012)
