Numanthia Toro Termes 2008 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

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!
