WS #4 Top Value Wine of 2021

Ripped cherry red with ruby reflections. Clean and brilliant. The aroma has good intensity with reminiscences of black fruits, spices notes and scrub bringing expression and complexity. Lively entrance on the palate, with medium structure and good balance. Memories of little black fruits, sweet spices such as cinnamon, a fresh touch of thyme and eucalyptus as well as a toffee and cacao background bringing complexity. The fresh and gentle tannin as well as the acidity make this wine long and expressive, fresh and elegant. To be enjoyed within the next 5 years.

Ripeness and balance to this rich, flavorful red with chewy tannins and a dense, fruity center palate. It’s medium-to full-bodied, polished and focused. Drink in a few years. Try in 2021.

The Numanthia estate, located northwest of Madrid in the Toro appellation, encompasses nearly 500 acres of vineyards spread among 200 parcels, with low-yielding old vines ranging from 50 years of age and up. Founded by the Eguren family of Rioja in 1998, the winery helped to put the Toro region on the map in the 2000s, promoting a suave, more modern take on the area’s formerly rustic reds. The quality of Numanthia’s three bottlings, including the more affordable Termes label, haven’t missed a beat since a change of ownership in 2008, when the estate was sold to luxury giant LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. Of the 15 vintages of Termes reviewed by Wine Spectator, 13 have rated 90 points or higher. This is a go-to version of Tinta de Toro (the local version of Tempranillo) for any lover of Spanish wine. 12,500 cases made, 10,000 cases imported.
