Termes 2014 Toro, Numanthia
In the middle ages Toro wines were enjoyed all over Spain and beyond. Reestablished in 1933 the Toro D.O. currently has 14,000 acres planted, but Numanthia Estate has single handedly put Spain's Toro region back on the map, by producing award winning wines celebrated world wide, that have reached Icon status. The high altitude (2,000 feet) of the vineyards offers extremely favorable conditions for the grapes to mature and develop. The yields from these vines are some of the lowest in Europe averaging less that 1 ton per acre. The Tinta de Toro grape which is a clone of Tempranillo, is very dark in color, especially these very concentrated old vines grapes, so the wine shows deep color and rich extraction. This 2014 Termes is made from grapes from vines averaging 30 year of age. Extended maceration of the grape skins and regular racking during 16 months' ageing in French oak barrels give the wine a lively combination of fruit and structure. It scored 91 points from the Wine Advocate who said "I also tasted the 2014 Termes, which is from a fruit-driven and balanced year, and should be released in the second half of 2017. The fermentation and Úlevage were similar to the 2013, but the wine already shows some of the changes that are being implemented in the winery. The wine started malolactic in barrel but was then transferred to stainless steel to finish it. They have also reduced the amount of new oak, because they want to show more fruit; however, this is only a transition year when the new team could only do some fine tuning. But I could already detect more freshness; 2014 was a very different year to the atypical 2013, and I see a more lively palate here. The tannins are fine-grained. 2014 is a balanced year, perhaps similar to 2010, and the wine shows good harmony and balance. and James Suckling scored it 94 saying "This is really dense with beautiful layers of luscious fruit and walnut, vanilla character. Full and rich yet vibrant and driven. It's all here. Drink or hold."
