Believe it or not the 2004 Termanthia is even better than the Numanthia. From an 11 acre plot 2600 feet above sea level planted with 100+-year-old ungrafted vines the yields were well under 1 ton of fruit per acre. The wine was barrel fermented and received the "200% new oak" treatment over 20 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Opaque purple-colored the wine has an awesome nose which is already multi-faceted. There are elements of pain grille lead pencil mineral violets blueberry and blackberry with just a bit more subtlety and nuance than its two colleagues. On the palate the wine is an infant developmentally with densely packed ripe fruit sensational balance and a seamlessness that must be tasted to be believed. It should age like a great vintage of Lafite or Latour and have at least a 50 year life span. If you have a soul sell it to the devil for a few bottles of this extraordinary liquid. There are only 1500 bottles for the American market.

Oak is dominant now with luscious mocha dark chocolate and toasty flavors but there's plenty of ripe black fruit underneath. Massive tannins are so well-integrated the wine feels plush and lively acidity keeps this balanced. Best from 2010 through 2020. 125 cases imported. –TM
