Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Grapes: 95% Tinta de Toro, 5% Garnacha

In a continental vintage of slow maturation and marked contrasts in temperatures, Prima has an impenetrable deep colour, intense and powerful in aromas with a suggestive minerality, fine tannins and bright red fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Bodegas Maurodos's 2008 Prima is 95% Tinta de Toro and 5% Garnacha 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. "

My husband liked the oak flavor. I liked the fruity flavors. However, neither of us would spend over $10 for this. We got it on sale for $16. I would have been seriously displeased had I paid the asking price ($25) for this. Drinkable, but nothing special. Drank it in 2011.
