Veramonte Syrah Blend 2008

External Review:

Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 92One of the first cool-climate reds from Chile, the newest version of Primus is packed with red cherry flavors and notes of bell pepper and bacon. The flavors of blackberry juice and clove end on a plush, mouthwatering finish. Ready to pour now with a steak, it will also gain complexity with time.Wine Tasting NotesA blend of Carmenere (The Lost Bordeaux Grape), Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Primus is a combination of power and finesse from Veramonte's Casablanca Valley Estate. Primus 2005 has a rich, ripe character with expressive fruit and exotic spice resulting in a complex wine with a good body, yet velvety texture and elegant, ripe tannins.

Highly aromatic, this explodes with bright passion fruit scents and herbal pungency. Lots of pink grapefruit flavor and a zesty, crisp finish make this eminently drinkable. Drink now, as an apeacute;ritif or with light appetizers.

Tasty cut grass, lemon zest and mineral flavors here, with a fresh, lively finish. Drink now.
