Editorial Reviews for Veramonte Primus the Blend Colchagua Valley
Perfumed on the nose with a strong pine resin note over rich, ripe blueberry fruit. In the mouth this is soft and dry with black cherry fruit that’s wrapped in a clumsy, chunky mouthfeel. The fruit turns a bit muddied and indistinct on the finish. 84pts
Fruity on the nose with a nice underlay of toasty oak spice and vanilla and top notes of braised herbs, licorice and violets. This is smooth and supple in the mouth with an initial rush of smoky, toasty and scorched earth inner-mouth perfumes. Perhaps a bit on the tight side, this shows a fairly heavy if balanced load of load tannins in the mouth along with dark pencil lead and toast flavors over some grape, with red currants and fresh purple and blue fruits. The finish is cut short by the tannins. This has some of the hardness and underlying unyielding nature of old school winemaking. I bet this gets better with 2-5 years in the cellar. Needs an aggressive steak for dinner tonight. 90pts
45% syrah, 40% carignan, 15% grenache. The nose starts with a strong hit of dirt then manure, but with juicy blackberries underneath. The flavor doesn't have the fruit, but is an interesting combination of olive and fennel seeds. Next to no finish.
Started well, but faded quickly.
This wine is a smooth garnacha.
BBQ potentie. Licht geur, prettige schoenenzweet. Drinkbaar, sappig, voor niet roodwijn liefhebbers prima. Paul van Kats wijn
Artisan juni proeverij - De smaak is opvallend zacht en soepel. De hinten van sappige bessen en de zachte zuren geven de wijn zijn elegante karakter. Lichte tonen van vanille in de afdronk
A fresh, crisp grape typical wine with notes of apple and minerals.
External Reviews for Veramonte Primus the Blend Colchagua Valley
Deep, ruby-red in color, San Calisto offers layered aromas of ripe blackberries and crushed black cherries, followed by spicy notes of cassis, leather and Mediterranean wildflowers. On the palate, its firm structure is elegantly softened by its silky, rich mouthfeel. San Calisto is excellent with sharp cheeses, barbecued ribs, lamb, filet mignon or steak au poivre. - Winery
A full bodied proprietary blend of Syrah and Grenache grapes with ripe red fruit on the nose and pallet, redolent with cherries and blackberries, and rich in earthiness--characteristic Languedoc "terroir." This wine will age for 10-12 years allowing its excellent balance of fruits and tannins to mature, growing more complex in structure. Serve at room temperature after decantation and enjoy with any pork, beef, or game meats. - Winery
A very grippy style, with lots of sweet tapenade, tobacco, hot stone and braised chestnut notes weaving through a core of dark currant and fig fruit. There's a nice twinge of lavender on the structured finish. For the cellar. Best from 2010 through 2028.
Pale yellow straw in color with slight silver hues at the rim. Fresh aromas of baked brie green apple lemon curd and tangerine stand out against a frame of lavender and pulverized sea shells. The mouthwateringly high acidity comes in on the attack and stays throughout. Flavors of key lime pie red apple skin and quince open the mid palate and lead to slightly hot finish. Give this a few years to come together and enjoy the following 4-6 years. Jeff Loo.
Focused, with a range of apple, lime, pear, floral and mineral notes that stretch out on the bright, stony finish. This has concentration in reserve. Drink now through 2012.
Komplexes Bouquet mit leichtem Vanilleanklang.Die kraftvolle, grosszügige Struktur bietet eine fleischige Grundlage für tiefe Register von grosser Zartheit.
Packed, in a brawny, muscular style atypical for this lush vintage, with a gravelly undertow to the currant paste, braised fig and dark licorice notes. Picks up even more steam on the finish, with grilled mesquite, mineral and garrigue notes and a long, hot stone-filled finish. Best from 2010 through 2030.
