    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 growing season was characterized by its great fruit concentration, a mild summer slowed the ripening process and reduced the yields naturally, which resulted in greater concentration, with slowly ripenening and delicate fruit, healthy grapes and elegant yet powerful tannins.

    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:

    The 2007 Primus is a glass-coating opaque purple with aromas of tar, licorice, pepper, blackcurrant, and blueberry. Youthful, structured, and balanced, it will evolve for 5-7 years and offer prime drinking from 2015 to 2025.

    Very good wine. Nice nose and fruit flavor that opened up fairly quickly in the glass. My original order was a couple bottles to try, but got an additional case. Very good wine at this price point.

    I bought a bottle of this locally a few months back and was very impressed. We have shared this wine with some of our most hard to please wine loving friends and they also were very impressed. Give this one a try!

    Fantastic surprise. Very drinkable and smooth, thinner wine that is full of flavor. I was surprised at how much flavor is in this wine
