    (2003 Vintage) "Plush, polished and alluring, this modern red offers ripe, sweet blackberry and cassis flavors supported by plenty of toasty oak and grounded by a firm minerality. Not muscle-bound, but structured and balanced, with a long floral finish. Drink now through 2015. 6,100 cases made."

    (2009 Vintage) The purple-colored 2009 Prima is made up of 90% Tinta de Toro and 10% Garnacha aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak prior to bottling without filtration. Earthy minerals, espresso, truffle, licorice, and blackberry aromas lead to a ripe, dense, sweetly-fruited, layered wine lacking only complexity. Give it 1-2 years to fill out and drink it through 2021.
