2003 Bodega Numanthia Toro Termes, Spain, Toro, Wine Review

Purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has a damp forest floor quality with black raspberries, and black cherries.  On the palate, this is drinking quite well and much younger than its 15 years would suggest.  It has shed most of its oak from its youth with plenty of fruit still left.  It is ripe and jammy.  Slight tannins mostly integrated at this point. Nice glycerin driven texture.  Seems at or close to peak but no hurry.  Slight warmth on the finish.  

2013 Bodega Numanthia Toro Termes, Spain - Wine Reviews

Always a solid value, this vintage is no exception.  Purple in color.  The nose has dark cherries, coffee and splight plums.  On the palate, this is delcious.  Plenty of dark cherry and plum fruit.  Some oak showing.  Great texture.  This is a pretty big round wine that will drink well on its own or with food.  A sure fire crowd pleaser.  

Toro: Spain’s Up-and-Coming Wine Region

Last week, LVMH, owner of Moët Hennessy, Louis Vuitton and many other famous luxury labels, announced that it has purchased Bodega Numanthia Termes. The Toro winery will be in good company – Moët Hennessy also owns Dom Pérignon, Veuve Cliquot and many other well-known wine brands. Numanthia Termes commands high prices for its top wines, and with good reason.
