    March 5, 2019 - Our go-to in a restaurant if we see it by the glass. Nose of dark, very ripe fruit (black raspberries, blackberries) with a touch of savory; rich, luscious black and purple fruit flavors, a zippy midpalate, and a long, bright fruity finish with a touch of mocha. Give it a bit of time to open, but best to drink it all on day 1. It goes downhill pretty quickly after that.

    February 17, 2019 - I am rarely a big Tempranillo fan, but this is a reasonably priced interesting modern style wine with a moderate amount of complexity. Big, fat, chewy and ripe with medium acidity and low tannin and 15% ABV. There were woody, oaky and cedar notes abounding on the nose and palate but were balanced by some rich deep fruit flavors like ripe plum, boysenberry and blackberry. It didn’t seem hot to me and finished long and fruity. The next morning I tried it as well and it had a nice chocolate note on the nose, mid palate and finish. This would be great with full flavored and spiced foods ranging from BBQ to spicy Asian, Mexican or Spanish.

    December 31, 2018 - This wine is still very dark, no garnet rim. The nose at first perplexing, some raisiny prune notes, touch of wet cardboard at the very end. After 45 minutes it evened out. This wine has dark meaty flavors, cassis. What it does not have is the complexity in other vintages. A very nice bottle- I decanted 1/2 of it. Vacuvinned the rest, not up to par for Numanthia as my past experience.

    November 11, 2018 - I agree with Wink. I'll add this: It might gain by a little more time, but not likely to make a big difference. Nice alternative to Cali Cabs that cost a lot more. Held its own against a tri tip, has those aspects that makes Cab and Tempranillo a good companion to beef. Would probably go well with lamb also. At the right price, a repurchase to be sure.
