($29) This plush red offers rich, ripe fruit flavors of blackberry and currant, framed with spice, espresso and dark chocolate details. Shows structure and balance, in the modern style. Drink now through 2019. 8,000 cases made.
Dark ruby with a garnet halo. Nose of black currant, smoke, toasty oak and licorice. On the palate, fruit-forward and full-bodied with blackberry, blueberry, the same licorice and a hint of Christmas spice. Lengthy and mouth-puckeringly tannic finish.
The Numanthia estate is situated at Valdefinjas, a small village in the Zamora province. Numanthia was founded in 1998 by the Eguren familly, native of Rioja, in order to create the best wine of the Toro appellation.

Wine Enthusiast 92 Points
This is a ripe, dark but balanced Toro with pastry, prune, blackberry and vanilla aromas. The palate is fiercely tannic on the surface but not overly hard at the foundation. Flavors of burnt toast, blackberry, spice, licorice and chocolate finish warm, toasty and dark, with echoes of ripeness and hard tannins. Drink now through 2018.
Wine & Spirits Magazine 92 Points
"Like the wine you might order at a bar in the town of Toro, this is deliciously rustic, its tannins full of astringency, its black fruit flavors bursting with sweet ripeness. A selection from 30-year-old vines in Toro and Valdefinjas, this feels like a little fiesta in the mouth, ready to party with smoked pork ribs."

"This expressive red offers blackberry, chocolate, toast and mineral notes, with firm, well-integrated tannins supporting a plush texture. Ripe yet focused, in the modern style."
Wine Enthusiast 91 Points
"Dark and opaque, with compact aromas of rubbery blackberry and controlled oak. Feels flush and grabby, with staunch tannins and creamy, toasty flavors accenting core blackberry and cassis. This seems more barrel-influenced the longer it airs out."
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 91 Points
"Glass-staining ruby. Pungent, expressive scents of cherry compote and dark berries, pipe tobacco and incense. Creamy cherry and blackcurrant flavors are lifted by gentle minerality and pick up a mocha element with air. Shows very good energy on the finish, leaving cherry-vanilla and violet notes behind."
