Bright cherry red with ruby highlights. Numanthia is a fresh, yet expressive wine. It first reveals a fruity nose with cranberries, blackcurrant and violet notes, then hints of cinnamon, cloves and black pepper followed by delicate and balsamic aromas with mint, eucalyptus and sandalwood. Firm on the palate with a harmonious, wide and balanced evolution. The wine’s freshness offers length and vivacity, while it coats the palate with supple tannins. It first develops ripe red fruit, cocoa, cinnamon, mineral and spicy notes such as graphite, nutmeg or cloves, giving complexity and elegance. The finish is gentle and long, with minty, minerals and red berry notes.

An instantly polished impression on the nose with lively dark plum and black cherry fruits swathed in spicy complexity. The texture is seamless, saturated in energetic dark plum fruit flavor. A great wine. Try from 2020.

This red is rich, yet remains lively, with bright berry and tangerine flavors mingling with currant, cocoa and toasty notes. Well-integrated tannins and citrusy acidity support the plush texture. Vibrant, in the modern style. Drink now through 2028.

Opaque, bright-rimmed purple. Ripe dark berry and fruitcake scents are lifted by smoky mineral and peppery spice flourishes. Broad, fleshy and sweet, offering intense blackberry preserve, cherry-vanilla and mocha flavors that become livelier with aeration. Shows excellent clarity and strong, dark-fruit-driven persistence on the finish, which is given shape by smooth, even tannins. Fermented in new French oak barrels and then raised in a second set of new barrels, so the proverbial 200% new oak.
