Easily the star in a vertical of older vintages of Numanthia.  Inky purple in color.  The nose has slight coconut with ripe black cherries and some spice.  On the palate, this is lush, deep and still youthful.  Black cherry fruit.  Firm medium tannins.  Long finish.  Just a delicious wine that will doubtless last another decade and probably two as it matures.  This will need bigger food to stand up to it.
