    February 24, 2019 - Still inky black in colour. Lovely aromas of black currant, vanilla and spice and just a touch of menthol. The black fruit carries on to the palate, but what you notice most is not the flavours but the body. This is a massive wine, still youthfully tannic, and very full bodied. The first few sips were almost over-powering but with air and some food things settled down and it became a delicious but very powerful wine. With the current trend towards more elegant wines, I doubt too many somms would have much good to say here, but we certainly enjoyed it. www.advinetures.ca

    December 23, 2018 - Ruby with purple tint without any signs of aging. First dominated by black currants and vanilla. After decant and three hours it adds on in terms of complexity. Currants, blackberries, cherries, herbs, vanilla, baconfat, licorice. On the palate concentrated but yet showing poise (in contrast to a bottle one year ago) with nice acidity and still large amounts of round tannin, which after all keep me from giving more than an outstanding score . All in all very young with two decades to go, I guess, if optimal stored since release. 5 hours after decant it got even more intense. Jay S Miller from the WA wasn't so wrong in scoring at least this wine as the last scores from Neal Martin and R. Parker (Termanthia) suggest. 5/13/18/10 -2030+

    December 10, 2018 - Terrific drinking right now. The oak and tannins have softened considerably in recent years, and the fruit is thick and powerful.

    November 2, 2018 - One of the most impressive Numanthia wines. Pitch black, aromatic black cherry and black currant. Exudes richness and power in the mouth. Somehow manages to be grippy tannic and still lush and superbly integrated. Not the slightest hint of anything tired, old, or off flavored. Overall, endlessly enjoyable now and for years more.

    October 28, 2018 - Well well well. This is a completely different animal than the bottles I drank earlier. This bottle was singing. Very lively, full bodied, fine grained tannins. I’m glad I held on to this case :)
