Bodegas Numanthia

Numanthia Toro Tempranillo 2014

The 2014 'Numanthia' Toro is a stunning wine that is already offing wonderful appeal. While it needs a bit of air contact, the wine shows gorgoeus aromas of ripe dark fruits on the nose, particularly dark cherry and roasted dates most dominant. The silky mouthfeel glides through the mid-palate as this shows a distinct dusty character, and notable decadence, with black forest Cake, wild mushrooms, espresso bean and toffee flavors that ad excellent range. Downright delicious now, this great Toro also has the stuffing to cellar well for the next fifteen plus years. Drink 2019-2033- 93 — a day ago

Cuvée Especial Rueda Verdejo 2012

16/20 (88/100) Необычный, заметно редуктивный аромат с нотами бразильского ореха, груши, ананасов и жженого пера. Умеренная тельность, довольно высокая кислотность. Интересное вино, но не для каждого. — 5 days ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1997

A stunning wine, the 1997 Valbuena 5° is a simply outstanding Ribera del Duero which is incredible at more than twenty years of age. This has turned out to be a complete success from a challenging vintage in Ribera and is evolving beautifully. This has great earthy character with wild mushroom, peat moss, black cherry compote and coffee grounds and cassis which all come to mind as the aromatics are absolutely seductive. The palate is plush and gorgeously textured, showing polished black tea, leather, black fruits and truffles which all marvelously combine with a bright minerality . This is a stunning wine which is showing remarkably well and will continue to evolve into the next decade. Drink 2019-2033- 96 — 6 days ago

Viña San Román Toro Tempranillo 2015

The 2015 San Roman is gorgeous right now. Following extended air contact, the wine begins to opens with a ripe dark fruit bouquet with toasty oak, white rose and milk chocolate shavings which all build in th glass. On the palte this displays a wonderful combination of tension and viscosity. Blueberry Coulis, blackberry pie, coffee grounds and dark chocolate flavors all come to mind. Complex and seductive, this will have an exceedingly long life in the cellar. Drink 2019-2030- 93 — a day ago

Las Uvas de la Ira Cebreros 2010

This 100% GR was killer, one of the better grenache varietal wines I’ve had lately. Incredibly fresh, great purity and length, seamless. Lively acid and elegantly laced tannin. Cranberry, crushed morello cherry, red apple skin, sweet medicinal herbs, crushed flowers, baked earth, ceylon cinnamon. — 3 days ago

El Anejón Ribera del Duero Tinto Fino Blend 2009

I loved the 2010 so couldn’t wait to try the €66 2009 that I nabbed from @gabymeetswine @vilaviniteca 😁 Again in a lovely box & a delicious wine that’s softer than the 2010 but yumbags 👍 If you want oomph (I’m talking slap on the bottom) go 2010 if you want elegance (Like a silky butt massage) go 2009 😉
