93 Wine Spectator – “Rich yet focused, this modern-style red delivers a mouthful of blackberry and currant fruit, framed by coffee and toast flavors, with mineral and sanguine accents. Drink now through 2021.”-T.M..June/2015
91 Wine Advocate– “The 2011 Termanthia is dark and brooding with notes of peat and damp earth, shoe polish and plenty of smoky, spicy notes from the barrel. The palate is full-bodied, but seems a little too extracted with drying tannins toward the end. It seems a bit too extracted and dry. It might improve with time in bottle, as it is too young. Drink 2015-2019..Luis Gutierrez, August/2014 The award winning Termanthia is the ultimate expression of the best of vineyard plots in Toro with vines that over 120 years old and at an altitude of 800 meters. The hyper-concentrated fruit produces considerable aromatic complexity and shows tremendous power on the palate with plenty of fleshy roundness and as much elegance and precision as it does intensity. This is a wine that will keep very well, gaining even more complexity in bottle.”
