Wine Advocate Review Rated 94 The 2010 Numanthia comes from a cooler vintage than the 2009 - a season when Manuel Louzada told me that he had to wear a pullover in the vineyard during picking! It is aged for 21 months in new French oak. The bouquet demonstrates more fruit concentration and clarity than the 2009, the 0.5% less alcohol making a tangible difference. The aromatics are more Medoc-like than the 2009. The palate is full-bodied with mouth-gripping tannins, yet it has a silky smooth texture. There is real attack on the mid-palate, perhaps a little more vigor and tension with hints of graphite and sous-bois towards the strict finish. This is due to be launched in September 2013 and should be at the top of any Toro-lovers' list - maybe even above Termanthia? Drink 2018-2028+.
Wine Tasting Notes Deep red with light ruby tones. Intense and complex nose, with several layers: first intense notes of red and black fruit, followed by perfectly integrated sweet spices, vanilla and toasted characters. Impressive backbone of ripe, velvety tannins, leading to a round and full mouth-feel, integrated with concentrated dark berries. Long and elegant finish with a wide range of aromas, from dark fruit, to cocoa, toasted and spicy notes.
