big one from spain - a little gamey but not enough to make it unpleasent. Not super classy - a little ruff around the edges might mellow in a few years?....

Oenosopher 92

Dark oxblood color with ruby rim. A concentrated and rich nose of plum, cassis, chocolate and vanilla. Initial smooth and silky mouthfeel with highly concentrated black fruit fruit flavors morph into dusty tannins with fruit shining through like the sun peering through a thick cloud cover. Tannins are so massive they last for 45 seconds and are followed by pure fruit for even longer. A grand wine with big texture and body to put away for a few years before opening.

Tasted in 2007 a 1998 Numanthia at John Phillips house. The experience was almost undescribable. Just about the most impressive wine I had tasted up to then and still is today

Nose is primarily raspberry, sour cherries and leather with some dark toast and molasses. Acids are well defined and the tannins are dusty and coats your mouth completely. The red currant fruit shines after the tannin bomb and there is also a little taste of rotten apples which is not bad at all. This finish is austere but good.
