    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine is dark opaque garnet, with aromas of exotic spice, toast and hints of tobacco and mint. The massive flavor is mouthfilling with lush blackberry and cherry notes with smooth powerful tannins.

    "One of the first cool-climate reds from Chile, the newest verstion of primus is packed with ripe red cherry flavors and notes of bell pepper and bacon. The flavors of blackberry juice and clove end on a plus, mouthwatering finish. Ready to pour now with a steak, it will also gain in complexity over time."

    If you enjoy red varietal blends with a full body, you'll like this wine. Softer tannins with a smooth texture and finish. The increased prices on Napa Cabs have me trying and really enjoying wines such as this one. Definitely a smart buy.

    I have been buying this wine for several months now and find it to be one of the best quality reds for its value. It was the top pick over 17 other bottles of wine and other red varieties at a wine-tasting event I attended several months ago. Full flavor but not too heavy. Clean finish.

    I thought it tasted better the first time I purchased it. It was not as rich this time; the flavor was missing.

    The Veramonte Primus 2005 is highly rated by Wine & Spirits and Wine News. The high ratings are undeserved. With a decent nose, the wine displays a sourness at mid-palate with a harsh tar-like finish. It left no positive impression. A wine to forget!

    Not up to it's rating or price. Other Veramonte wines, at lower price points, are better.
