Numanthia Toro Termes 2008 Wine Review (NW)
Spicy berries and chocolate on the rich nose
Full bodied and plush on the palate
Berries, licorice, and coffee on the moderately tannic finish
Year after year, this is a big, flavorful wine. From the Toro region of Spain, it's made from Tempranillo (locally known as Tinto Toro). The 2008 edition is powerful and nicely layered as well as being a bit more tannic than some prior years. Enjoy now after decanting or allow it to cellar for a few years. At $26, it's a good buy. Raise a glass!
