This was the wine of the day, with rich powerful, sweet and expressive Tempranillo that only these old phylloxera resistant wines can produce. Dark, rich and opaque in the glass, it continued to open up over the 4-5 hours since it was opened. Begs for red meat. Blueberry, cassis coffee, and here the oak was in full swing but in no bad way. Not sure if 2003 was remarkable for the vintage but this wine might outshine anything I know of from that region. I can still taste it in my mouth the next day.

Tannins are starting to soft finally! excellent core of fruit emerges as the toasty oak.Long finish and very suave,deliciuos tannins on a full body very dark inky and dense.

pepper and tar is what I get in this pleasant bold bottle. Numanthia is always the good way to go.

The 2003 Numanthia was fashioned from yields of one ton of fruit per acre (from a clone of Tempranillo that often has the highest polyphenols of any Tempranillo clone). This cuvee is made from 70- to 100-year-old vines planted at a 2,300 foot elevation, which no doubt accounts for the freshness in this massively rich, intense red. A vivid, intense nose of espresso roast, pain grille, sweet black cherries, and creme de cassis is followed by a full-bodied, intensely-concentrated, rich, well-delineated, moderately structured, pure red that can be drunk young or cellared for a decade.

Wonderful aromas of dark fruit and graphite on the nose. A deep dark purple in the glass. . .amazing flavors of cassis, bing cherry and dark chocolate on the palate. Fine grained tannins that could use a few more years to fully integrate. This is a robust wine and should be paired with a steak, lamb or a heavy stew. Will enjoy opening the next few over the next 5 to 7 years.

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?....

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
