    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 growing season was warm which provided good ripening and excellent red, ripe fruit flavors. Care was taken to avoid over-exposure from the direct afternoon sunlight. Rainfall was lower than average, which combined with the warm temperatures provided healthy grapes, intense fruit flavors and robust tannins.

    Blend: 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Syrah, 19% Carmenere, 15% Merlot

    The Winemaking Team
    Primus wines are crafted by a team of expert viticulturists and winemakers led by winemaker, Cristian Aliaga, who has over 10 years' experience at Veramonte. Alvaro Espinoza, one of the world's most respected winemakers, widely known as an innovator and champion of some of Chile's best red wines, joined the team to craft the Primus wines. Alvaro works closely with the team to continually refine vineyard and winery practices that deliver rich ripe fruit with complexity, intensity and distinctiveness.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This ripe, full-bodied red mixes dark cherry, cassis and raspberry ganache notes with layers of spice, coffee bean and licorice that linger on the savory finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carmenere and Merlot.

    The price point on this wine makes it just OK for me. A nice blend, but a bit over priced.
