This wine has the power and ripeness typical of Toro but adds a polish and elegance rare for the region. The expressive ripe blackberry and cassis fruit flavors are framed by coffee mineral and floral notes and supported by ripe firm yet supple tannins. Drink now through 2020. 125 cases imported. –TM

A Toro on steroids the 2002 Termanthia emerges from a high altitude (2625 feet) old vine Tempranillo vineyard that produced only one half ton of fruit per acre. Sadly there are less than 125 cases produced. Its deep saturated ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet nose of smoke melted licorice white chocolate creme de cassis and kirsch liqueur. Full-bodied and dense with sweet tannin copious glycerin and body and a long heady seamless potent finish it is a candidate for the Toro of the vintage. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.Broker Jorge Ordonez is heavily involved in this project which is an attempt to revive high quality wines in Toro a distinctive viticultural area that was devastated by phylloxera. There are a number of serious wines emerging from Toro but Numanthia may be the most perfectionist wine of the appellation (although Vega Sicilia's Pintia and the Campo Elysio from Michel Rolland are among the worthy competitors).
