This intensely complex wine showcases several aromatic layers: first are notes of fresh, red fruits including strawberries and cherries which are accompanied by flavours of cream pastries. The nose goes on to reveal light balsamic touches including hints of cedar all of which are perfectly integrated with sweet spices such as cardammon and cinnamon and nutty flavours including toasted almonds. An intense, robust and nervy wine displaying incredible structure. Impressive fruit expression, sweet, well ripened tannins, leading to a meaty, viscous mouthfeel. A long and persistent finish with an extremely wide range of fruity aromas as well as toasted and spicy notes, highlighting the complexity and hand-crafted character of this wine.

The 2009 Numanthia comes from La Jara, El Pego and Vanialbo from 60- to 100-year-old vines and it is matured for 21 months in new French oak. It has a rounded, generous bouquet of raspberry coulis, wild strawberry and vanilla pod that is well-defined and not over-powering. The palate is medium-bodied with a spicy, elegant entry. The tannins are quite fine and lend the 2009 exceptional symmetry and focus. There is a dash of white pepper and graphite underpinning the dark berry fruit, with good structure towards the opulent, hedonistic and ebullient finish. Drink 2015-2025.
