Blend and Origin
Bodega Numanthia Termes 2014
The tinta de toro grapes in Termes are grown at 2,300 feet in Valdefinjas, Morales de Toro, Toro and Venialbo, on the estate's younger vines between 30 and 50 years old. A wet spring and mild summer in 2014 led to a slow ripening season and later harvest. Fermented in stainless steel and aged in French oak for 14 months, the wine was aged a further nine months in the bottle.
