Tasting Notes

The 2005 Numanthia was aged for 19 months in new French oak. Opaque purple, it has a superb perfume of violets, mineral, wood smoke, blueberry, and blackberry. This leads to a firm, very structured wine with questionable balance. The finish is long but tannic. This is a wine that demands cellaring but purchasing it is a gamble.

Provenance

This collection is a small part of a 10,000+ bottle cellar that has been meticulously kept at perfect temperature and humidity. Iron Gate has personally known this client for 10 years and even assisted in originally setting up this cellar when it was originally built by one of the top wine cellar designers in Toronto. Inventory was managed with an eSommelier system and to say that ultimate, almost obsessive care was taken in storing these wines would be un understatement. The collector himself is well connected in the wine world and always purchased from top producers and/or futures. The sale is a result of a migration to Burgundy in his drinking habits.
