93 Points, James Suckling - A fresh and spicy red with ripe-blackberry, violet and eucalyptus undertones. Full body, ripe yet firm tannins and a long, mineral and dark-chocolate finish. Needs some time still to soften.
90 Points, Wine Advocate - The 2013 Termes, from a slow ripening, cold and wet vintage, is pure Tinta de Toro (aka Tempranillo) from a number of 30- to 50-year-old vineyards in the villages of Valdefinjas, Morales de Toro, Toro, Venialbo and El Pego at an average of 700 meters altitude on sandy and stony soils. The destemmed grapes underwent a cold soak before fermenting and a post-fermentative maceration of 21 days. The wine aged in French oak barrels for 14 months with rackings every four months. The vintage provided conditions for fresher wines, and this Termes, harvested from October, has good acidity and a lively palate, showcasing the vintage. The nose has nicely integrated oak and a core of red and black fruit, quite harmonious. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannins and moderate acidity, but with a sense of freshness. There was less Numanthia produced in 2013, so part of the grapes that usually go to Numanthia is in this Termes.
Bright ruby color with violet glints. Slow and medium-sized tears. Fresh and young on the nose with fruit notes of strawberries andwhite flowers. The aromas of aging, the spices and the dulce de leche perfectly combine with the fresh rosemary and wild mint notes. After a very round entry on the palate, the wine expresses all its intensity, power and harmony. The sensations on the palate are fresh and vibrant with fruit and aromatic herb notes and a long finish.
