Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media:

"Deep ruby. Powerful dark fruit aromas are complemented by notes of licorice, dark chocolate and candied violet. Ripe and fleshy, like an '09, yielding intense cassis and bitter cherry flavors and a suave floral nuance. Finishes chewy and long, with excellent clarity and soft tannins." (09/12)

Wine Spectator:

"This polished red shows harmonious flavors of black cherry, chocolate, licorice and mineral, with well-integrated tannins and fine acidity. Not showy, but retaining depth and focus. Tinta de Toro and Garnacha. Drink now through 2020. - T.M." (06/13)

Product Description:

Wine:
"This is a wine made by Mariano Garcia, owner of Bodegas Maurodos, from vineyards planted in sandy clay soils in three different areas in Toro. The average age of the vines are 20 years old. Harvested by hand and selection of grapes in the vineyard. Aged for 11 months in oak barrels. Unfiltered. This wine shows the unmistakable touch of Mariano's masterful use of oak whereby concentrated dark fruit aromas and toasted, spicy aromas from oak coexist and it is nearly impossible to tell one from the other."

"The grapes for Prima are sourced from vines averaging 25 years of age from the villages of San Roman de Hornija, Villaster, Morales de Tor and Villafranca de Duero. The vineyards for this wine are growing in sandy-clay soils with gravelly subsoils as opposed to the stonier soils of fruit sourced for San Roman. Vineyards are trained both en vaso and to wire. The young estate vines were planted at higher density. " - Winery

This wine was also scored 88 Points by The Wine Advocate.
