    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.

    The 2006 growing season was characterized by even ripening conditions resulting in a balanced set crop. Favorable weather, long hang time and a smooth harvest yielded intensely concentrated flavors. Primus 2006 combines striking rich, ripe fruit, exotic spice and a round mouth feel with elegant tannins, leading to a long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lightly herbal but also showing quality berry, cassis, grilled meat and a light, leafy accent. Bordeaux-like in style, with ripe berry and plum flavors along with a dose of herbs. Confident, controlled wine that doesn't overdo it. One of the best, if not the best, Primus we've tried. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Carmenere.

    This is what I expect out of a $25 bottle. Let this wine breathe for 30+ minutes before enjoying it. The nose begins beautifully and interestingly (tobacco?) and then develops into a good example of a bordeaux blend. Deep, ripe berries, juicy plum and a hint of chocolate balance this wine nicely with the tannins. Expect a long finish of ripe blackberry. What I like best about this wine is that it doesn't 'need' food to be paired with, but it also works very well with food. It worked great with Chicken Scallopine and fresh pasta with garlic and olive oil

    I ordered this wine on the recommendation of my waiter at a restaurant I'm dining at in Los Angeles and I couldn't be happier with my choice. The wine tastes great out of the bottle and improves with each passing minute. I'm a. fan of Estancia Meritage and if you are too, you will really enjoy the Primus.

    Full bodies with spices, but also nice grip that made me lay 6 down in my cellar. fantastic value. This wine has nice structure and great balance.
