Winemaker's Notes

(From 2002 Vintage) A rich, massive wine with smooth, supple tannins and dense, multi-layered flavors. Primus is comprised of Carmenere, widely planted in Bordeaux in the 1800s, but now found only in Chile. This ususual cousin of Merlot produces wines of deep, exotic flavors and great aging potential.

    43% merlot, 36% cabernet, 21% carmenere. Já demonstra evolução, cor rubi com tons granada. Agradável no nariz, mas não muito complexo, sobressai os aromas de frutas negras, talvez um pouco fechado. Corpo médio.
