Served at The Bird as well during the meal. I had luck with these wines in the past. I think Termes is a better short term drinker than Numanthia is a long term holder. Lots of roasted black fruit on the front and middle, this one just doesn't have the finish or structure. Could this be in an odd place? Surely. Not really decanted for that long before serving, but the Sequel dispatched of it rather quickly both in flavor and complexity. The more I think about it, there is a 2 point difference in the 2 wines. — 8 days ago

We opened this one 6 months ago using the Coravin.
This is a truly great wine. You do not have to put your nose in the glass.... it is there and it stays there. WoW. Red fruit, tar, leather, black fruit, sandelwood. Close to perfection for me.

Excelente combinación de uvas, a un precio super accesible, y más si compran cuando hay promociones, sabor suave y no agarra el paladar. Excelente selección para acompañar en los alimentos o tenerlo en compañía de familiares o amigos. — 14 days ago
Smoky tasting- wine with Alex around Christmas — 6 days ago
This is fantastic but you have to really want it. In a blind, I’d like to say I’d correctly peg it for South American but who knows. It has a little bit of everything. It’s dark, brooding, and interesting. Rich, luscious, blackberry fruit gives way to dark chocolate, mocha, and leather. Ends on a smoky note with a creamy and loam- filled finish. Got it for $28 at Costco. Easily drinks at 2-3 times that. — 10 days ago
Vega Sicilia started purchasing vineyards in Toro in 1997 but didn’t release Pintia until ‘01 after perfecting their style. 100% Tinta de Toro, thick-skinned clone of Tempranillo, beautiful color, complex aromas of fruit & spice. Aged for 13 months in French & American oak. Intense aromas, notes of cedar & berry fruits. On the palate intense fresh dark berry fruit flavors with oak notes, well balanced with acidity. Complex tannins, lingering finish ending with elegant fruit finesse & touch of earthy tones. — 11 days ago
