2007 Pricum Valdemuz
"The 2007 Valdemuz is 100% Prieto Picudo from vines ranging in age from 100-115 years. For this cuvee 20% whole bunches were utilized with aging for 18 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up a splendid aromatic array of pain grille, graphite, espresso, truffle, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense, ripe, and concentrated, on the palate it is velvety textured and virtually seamless. This lengthy offering will evolve for another 5-7 years and provide big-time pleasure through 2027 if not longer."
"The Pricum wines are produced by Bodegas Maragon who specialize in working with Prieto Picudo, an indigenous variety that has been winning significant attention recently. The wines are made by none other than Raul Perez." 94 points - Jay Miller - Wine Advocate
"Inky purple. Far more serious than the foregoing Pricum bottlings, offering deep dark berry and bitter cherry aromas and flavors complicated by licorice and black cardamom. Lively minerality adds lift and thrust to the middle palate and a suave floral quality builds with air. Finishes with outstanding persistence and lingering notes of smoky minerals and dried rose. According to the importer, these vines are between 100 and 115 years of age and are planted even higher than those that produce the Paraje de El Santo, and on rockier soil." 92 points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"Produced from the oldest and lowest yielding estate vineyard, Valdemuz. Vines are aged between 100 and 115 years old and yield only 8 hectoliters per hectare. The vineyard is at a higher elevation than Paraje de El Santo and has stonier soils. The grapes are hand harvested from these old bush vines and sorted again at the winery prior to processing. A major difference between this and Paraje de El Santo, is that this wine incorporates 20% whole bunches along with 80% destemmed fruit in the fermentation. There is a cold pre-fermentation maceration prior to fermentation in temperature controlled French oak fudres. Following fermentation with native yeasts this wine saw 18 months aging in new French oak barrels." -Importer
"Bodegas MargÃ³n is the result of the passion that has moved the MartÃnez and GonzÃ¡lez families, to produce high quality wines with the Prieto Picudo variety. All of their estate grown, old vineyards are located in the village of Pajares de Los Oteros within the new D.O. Tierra de Leon."
"Tierra de Leon D.O. was created in July of 2007, but the existence of a characteristic grape and wines variety in this area come from the Roman Era. The production area, with around 3.500 km squared, is situated on the south of Leon and part of the north of Valladolid provinces. It is under the influence of Esla and Cea riverside. 34 wineries and 500 wine-growers are accepted in the protected Designation of Origin. The Prieto Picudo grape is the most characteristic grape of this area and is known for its conical bunches."
"Under the brand PRICUM, they produce white and red wines, made with grapes from their hundred year old vineyards, cared and fussed over as their ancestors did. During the harvest all their bush vines are hand harvested. Raul Perez is the manager and winemaker for this project. He has become one of the most international recognized winemakers from the northwest of Spain."
"They focus especially on allowing the maximum expression and quality of the Prieto Picudo variety. As such they received harvested grapes to a cooling room at the top of the winery. This permits the raw material to access the tanks by gravity and with the best temperature conditions. Fermentation occurs in French oak vats instead of conventional stainless steel tanks. A great selection of french tonnelleries in the cave allows to additional structure of oak to balance the power of the Prieto Picudo grapes. " -Importer

2007 Finca Sandoval
"The deep crimson-colored 2007 Finca Sandoval is made up of 79% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre, and 8% Bobal made entirely from estate-grown fruit. The wine was aged for 11 months in new and seasoned French and American oak. It offers up a brooding bouquet of underbrush, mineral, spice box, blueberry, and blackberry. Packed and impeccably balanced, this savory, layered effort is surprisingly forward for its size. It can be approached now but will be better with 2-3 years of additional cellaring." 93 points - Jay Miller - Wine Advocate
"A noticeable step up and a blend of 76% Syrah, 13% Monastrell, and 11% Bobal, aged all in French oak, the 2007 Finca Sandoval Manchuela is a deep, serious wine, delivering meaty black cherry and cassis like fruits intermixed with cedar, lavender, minerals and background wood aromas on the nose. Very smooth and suave, with a polished, balanced style, full body, solid mid-palate concentration, and a long, silky finish, this superb wine should drink well for a decade or longer. This needs an hour decant to really show well and continues to improve in the glass. I'm a fan of the structure and depth here, and would love to seem more serious examples like this coming from Spain. " 93 points - Jeb Dunnuck - Rhone Report
"Glass-staining purple. Suave, finely focused aromas of dark berries, Asian spices, anise and smoky minerals, with a sexy mocha undertone. Juicy and nicely balanced, with sweet blackberry and blueberry flavors, gentle spiciness and tangy minerality. The mineral quality helps to extend the sweet, sappy finish. There's an understated, precise quality to this wine that's extremely attractive." 92 points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"Shows a pure beam of briary blackberry, black cherry and spice flavors, accented by hints of vanilla and dried herbs. The supple tannins frame the wine, while juicy acidity enlivens it. There's good concentration, in a more elegant package. Drink now through 2014. 250 cases imported. -AN" 90 points Wine Spectator
"Finca Sandoval is a cherished, personal project started in 1998 by renowned journalist and wine writer Victor de la Serna, who teamed up with winemaker Rafael Orozco. The property is sited within its own vineyards which are planted with Syrah and Touriga Nacional. These vineyards, located in the heart of Manchuela, have also seen the slow incorporation of some of the best native varieties in the region (Bobal, Monastrell, Garnacha, Garnacha Tintorera) in a bid to fufill a dream formed over 40 years of deep knowledge and understanding of the soils of the estate." -Winery
