94 The Wine Advocate The 2008 Pricum Valdemuz was produced from the estate’s oldest (100-115 years) and lowest yielding vines. Unlike the previous offerings, this was made with 20% whole bunches with 18 months of aging in new oak. Aromas of pain grille, graphite, Asian spices, lavender, brier, black, and blue fruits leads to a loaded wine with impeccable balance, terrific volume, and the structure to evolve for at least 4-5 years. This lengthy effort should be at its best from 2015 to 2023, likely longer.

The Pricum wines of Bodegas Margon are made by the talented Raul Perez and it shows.
93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Opaque ruby. Sappy raspberry, currant and mocha on the explosively perfumed nose, along with a suggestion of incense. Powerful and deeply pitched but energetic, with aromatic flavors of red and dark berries, spicecake and minerals. A firmly built, extremely fresh wine with solid acidity and striking intensity to its long, floral finish. These vines are reportedly between 100 and 115 years old and the yield was a mere 8 hectoliters per hectare.
