No reserve on this auction.
Powerful stuff from one of the top names in Spain’s Toro region.
Jay Miller’s early review for the Wine Advocate back in 2010:
The 2007 Numanthia is marginally more approachable but it, too, is a dense, layered, voluminous, structured wine. Given the requisite cellaring, it will eventually become both elegant and powerful. Bodegas Numanthia-Termes was sold by the Eguren family to Moet-Hennessey prior to the 2006 vintage. What this might ultimately mean for quality or style of the wine remains to be seen but there is no questioning the performance of the 2006 and 2007 vintages.
Some much more recent Cellartracker notes:

Superb ripe fruits flavors, mostly blueberry and blackberry. Intense mouth. Great evolution for this wine !

Dark red; ripe dark mulberry, licorice, smoke; requires some air, on the lean side with good spices, mild but present tannins and a long lingering aftertaste; really nice with a good taste but also a bit acidic and “harsh”; all in all, a likeable wine, but not a blockbuster.

J adore vraiment le style de vin de vin fait a toro et numanthia es un super exemple.nez de mures,bleuets,sang,cassonade et un peu de garrigue.en bouche les tannins sont raffinés,l acixidté juste assez dosée,encore le fruits noirs et les herbes et la finale tres longue sur la framboise et un peu de sauge…romarin..pas sur…excellent vins.

Along with two other well aged bottles, this was the fave of the night. Pretty good out of the bottle, but decanted for two hours before dinner. Black fruit, nicely balanced and structured. Not complex, but elegant. Does not show its age in color or on the palate. Shows impressive stuff at 11 years.
