This is a pre-arrival item. ETA February 2021

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 97+ Points:The 2007 Termanthia is, like the 2007 Numanthia, a bit more accessible than its 2006 counterpart. That is to say that it should begin to become civilized with a mere 6-8 years of cellaring and should offer a...
