(2009 Vintage) Relatively warm winter, with below average rainfall and rapid bud break. Frost-free Spring, with early flowering beginning of June. Veraison was completed in the first week of August with moderate average maximum temperatures. From 8th September harvesting took place for 4 weeks with perfect weather conditions and occasional storms refreshing the grapes which had no impact on the health of the fruit.
(91 Points) Bodegas Maurodos’s 2008 Prima is aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak and bottled without filtration. Purple-colored, it displays a nose of cedar, spice box, violets, mineral, and blackberry. On the palate it is juicy, succulent, and concentrated, leading to a seamless finish. Drink this outstanding value over the next 6 years. Wine Advocate # 188, Apr 2010
