Primus the Blend Veramonte Colchagua Valley 2010
Franciscan Napa Cabernet Deep garnet. A rich bouquet of dark cherry, cocoa, clove, plum, tobacco and toasted oak, with delicate notes of coffee and truffle. Layered and complex. Rich and full on the palate with a supple mouthfeel and opulent layers of plum, cherry, anise, and mocha. Smooth and concentrated, the wine exhibits richly woven texture with dark, dense fruit on the long finish. 083085200220

Nothing very special, but nothing too bad either, more like something to depend on from a wine list when nothing else seems appropriate for a specific experience...similar to the posted Wine Maker's notes: '...full-bodied; layered with blackberry, cherry, dried plums, and a hint of cocoa...'
Needed to be decanted.. but opened up quickly. Very nice red blend.
External Reviews for Primus the Blend Veramonte Colchagua Valley
Elegant and balanced, with toasty red currant aromas and lively cherry, tomato leaf and spice flavors that finish soft, showing ripe tannins. Drink now through 2017. 1,981 cases made. -TF This Merlot is soft, simple and seemingly sweet in fruit and oak. With ripe cherry, mocha and spice flavors, it will partner well with a cheeseburger. - S.H.
Bright yellow in colour with fine tropical fruit and white peach on the nose. Crème Brule flavours appear on the palate. This wine has a perfectly balanced acidity, medium body with a long finish. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
Mega-lush and juicy, with a teeth-staining purple hue and ripe red and black currant flavors. Lots of spice, especially white pepper and allspice, on the finish. Perfect with anything BBQ.
Shows dusty dried herb, cedar, tobacco leaf and dried berry notes. Features a chewy mouthfeel and firm, extracted tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2024.
The 2010 Magnificat is composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. It possesses a deep purple color along with sweet creme de cassis, charcoal and background oak characteristics. There is no trace of herbaceousness in this full-bodied, opulent, nicely textured, chewy, long 2010. It is an impressive effort from Franciscan.
Shows the bell pepper and jalapeño side of Cabernet in a very pleasant and easy-to-enjoy style. Dried berry, savory herb, dill and loamy earth contribute to the flavor profile. Drink now through 2020
Good deep ruby. Spicy aromas of blueberry licorice minerals flowers and bitter chocolate. Sweet suave and deep with lovely lift to the complex cabernet franc-driven violet cocoa and white pepper flavors. Firmly structured and long on the refined youthfully chewy tannic finish. This 2010 will really need at least a few years to expand but will probably always remain a more austere wine than the 2009. I think will also prove to be a very ageworthy VCC. 96+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
