Numanthia Numanthia 2013
James SucklingA red offering lots of vanilla, plums and light prune character on the nose. Some violet and stone undertones. Full-bodied and structured with ripe yet firm tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Drink or hold.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Numanthia is a blend of the best terroirs in the Toro appellation. It was sourced from very old vineyards (70 to 100 years of age). It underwent a cold soak, prolonged maceration and aging in brand new French barriques that lasted some 16-18 months. It has abundant toasty aromas over a core of ripe cherries and plums, with an earthy touch. The palate is full-bodied with plenty of slightly dusty tannins and a dry finish.
