Numanthia 2013 Numanthia

Description

Wine Enthusiast 92 Points: "Despite 2013 being a tough year for reds throughout northern Spain, this is a good effort within the Numanthia framework. Compact dark fruit aromas hint at prune and chocolate. A raw palate with hard tannins and lemony acidity reflects the vintage, while flavors of black plum, currant, vanilla and maple land on buttery oak on a rough, hard finish. Best from 2021 to 2028."

Wine Spectator 91+ Points: "The 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. 45,000 bottles produced. This should be released in April-May 2017.

There is an ongoing change with a new technical team in Numanthia and it starts to show in 2014. I didn't find the freshness I expected from the 2013s, but I did find the one wine that I tasted from 2014 to be livelier and fresher. But the best is yet to come..."
