Editorial Reviews for Primarius Pinot Noir Oregon
Very delicate on the nose with lacy aromas of spiced strawberry fruit, freshly turned earth and some used wood. Light and elegant in the mouth this enters with a hint of baby fat but quickly turns taut and transparent in the mouth. the flavors are subtle and recall the tart berry and used wood found on the nose. theres a fine base of ripe supple tannins adding support in the mouth here and they stick out just a touch on the moderately long and simple tart red berried finish but i find that attractive. This is very subtle but that is what many look for in Oregon Pinot. I find this very attractive but others might find it a bit too restrained. 87pts
The Primarius certainly bears a very light, almost pinkish color (if would have been a hell-of a-lot darker if they had added more Syrah). The taste matches the color, with bright red cherry, cranberry and ripe raspberry; but the soft and delicate earthy and dried herb notes aren’t that far behind. Very mellow, with a beautifully long finish. It will change before your eyes/palate if you give it a little time in the glass. A great intro to Oregon Pinot (potentially also red Burgundies) for the novice, and a perfect every-night “glugger” for the already inducted.
Light in flavor compared to a BIG American Pino, and is somewhere between a Burgundy Pino Noir and a real Burgundy. Also unusual: a pungently herby, almost hemp-like floral nose. I kept sensing a metallic initial taste, huge floral punch and an earthy aftertaste.
Primarius is an earthy Oregon Pinot Noir that is fruity and very light. Perhaps too light for my taste. Drinkable red wine that would serve well at casual social functions. Great for a quick glass but not much more.
this wine is watery. the mouthfeel is more like a beaujolais...no silk to it. it also feels incredibly acidic.
aromas filled with a variety of red fruits, cherry, a little floral and notes of rose petals. on the palate, immediate bing cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, and earth, red brick earth. Delicate, elegant wine with soft tannins and that red earthy finish with a touch of cinnamon cloves.
Thin on color, diluted on palate, minimal activity in the nose. Disappointing.
Paired this with a veal milanese. Fruit, Blackberry on the nose and vanilla flavors on the finish.
External Reviews for Primarius Pinot Noir Oregon
Burgundian in style, with layers of subtle dried fruit and spice that evolve on the palate. A perfect pairing with simple grilled salmon.
Inviting aromas of raspberry and watermelon marry with hints of bacon, tar and earthy notes. Tantalizing cranberry, rhubarb and rose hips are interwoven on the palate. This Pinot Noir leaves wonderful flavors of cocoa and clove on the finish.
