Big fruity wine, stood up to baby back rib dinner and worst service we have had at a famous rib place in Delray that I won't name but you have to order your ribs ahead of time, and then for most of us that night, they screwed up the order and acted like it was our fault. The Numanthia is a fascinating wine, has long time to give, not always sure I like all of it but time will tell.
Black with a deep ruby rim. Big, powerful wine but with lots of character. Anise, focused blackberry essence, lemon rind, and minerality. Full bodied on the palate, some rustic tannins on the finish but it's that kind of wine. Needed an hour + of air to open fully.
The wine was popped and poured and the bouquet still a bit locked because of this probably, but it showed ripe dark berry fruits and some chocolate. Same on the palate. Modern made with a lot of ripe dark fruits, beautifully integrated oak and also good acidity and round tannin. Beautiful wine, starting to show its elegance beside the concentration. Lovely now and certainly still around 2020.
