Numanthia Toro Tempranillo 2006

Masculine, still pretty tannic, acidity provides freshness.
Dark fruit, cocoapowder, coffee grounds, charred oak, bbq, ferrous minerality.
Holding up very well, cruising through midlife.

This is what I imagine a good Toro would be: a rich and powerful rendition of Tempranillo. Blackberry, plum, licorice, fig, incense, espresso, and earth. Exuberant and dense on the palate but there is enough acidity to carry the weight. Gripping tannins.
From the founder of Bodega Numanthia, and I think this is better than the Numanthia. Wish I bought more.

Termes Toro Tinto de Toro 2018

Very delicious wine. Cassis and layers of red and black fruit. Elegant. James Suckling gave this wine 96 points, and that seems really high. But this is an incredible value at under $20. — 2 months ago

Sequel Columbia Valley Syrah 2014

Out of the 4 wines opened at The Bird, this one edged out the Numanthia 12 by a hair. Quite similar profiles IMO. This Walla Walla Syrah was quite enjoyable with dark black fruit on the front. Consistent with the 2015 I tasted a bit ago but IMO, this one had a bit more of a smoked beef flavor in the middle that the dark sweet and still youthful fruit gave way. Chose this as the "food" wine since most chose the Bird Burger (a grass fed beef burger)....it went rather well. Popular with the crowd of novices and winos, the smoky finish was very complementary. Maybe I might acquire a few of these WA Syrahs afterall to have for these purposes....(not a word, @Shay A .... 😆) — 4 years ago

Lol @Shay A the pairing of this wine with a grass-fed beef with that more pungent beef note was really incredible. I could imagine opening up a few Washington Syrahs at Classic and getting some sliders delivered from somewhere that used grass-fed beef. That would be a really awesome afternoon!

Inky purple color. Expressive nose with dark cherries, tobacco, hint of dark chocolate, herbs and violets. Palate opens up with cherries, blood orange, herbal notes. Tannin is silky but persistent. This could last another decade if not longer. — 3 months ago

El Viejo Tinta de Toro Tempranillo

Unique in my experience with Toro, which admittedly is limited. Love the flavor the older vines impart, not@overly oaked like a young Numanthia. 2009 vintage. — 6 years ago
