Bodegas Numanthia Toro 2012 750ml


SKU: 13d82238d2cc Categories: ,


Both intense and complex, there are several layers of aromatics in this lively nose: first some extremely intense notes of red and black fruits perfectly integrated with sweet spices , vanilla and toasted characters. Impressive fruit expression, concentrated and velvety tannins, leading to a velvety and lively full body mouthfeel. Accolades WE 92 Smells floral, toasty and black fruited, with cola and tobacco notes. Like all previous Numanthias, this is hugely structured and tannic, with ripe berry, spice and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes massive, with mocha, coffee and toast. Grabby and hard now, but delicious. Needs two more years in bottle; drink now from 2012 through 2016. -Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points WS 91 Both powerful and vibrant, this expressive red delivers a rich core of cassis and pomegranate, framed by toast, smoke, mineral and loam notes. A dark wine even austere, but has plenty of life. Drink now through 2016. -Wine Spectator, 91 Points W&S 91 Intensely black when first opened, this wine needs several hours to begin to show its fruit flavors and spicy sweetness. For now, it’s all hidden behind a heavy curtain of tannins, a concentrated juice of ancient vines, some more than 100 years old. Cellar it to decant for spicy braised lamb. -Wine & Spirits, 91 Points
