Veramonte Primus The Blend Colchagua Valley

Wine Description

For over 10 years, The Blend has been one of Chile’s top red wines, expressing power and finesse by merging Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Carmenère, the “lost” Bordeaux varietal. Agustin Huneeus, creator of some the world’s best red blends including Magnificat and Quintessa, developed Primus, which leverages winemaking techniques used by Napa Valley’s top Cabernets and Red Blends: Colchagua Valley´s yields are managed to 2-3 tons per acre, grapes are meticulously double sorted before crush, and French oak aging. Aged in the finest French and American oak for 14 months, this wine delivers world-class quality in the glass featuring rich, dense fruit, exotic spice and a long textured finish.

    Ripe red and black berry fruit flavored with exotic spicy notes; soft yet full bodied with long memorable finish.
