Editorial Reviews for Veramonte Primus the Blend Colchagua Valley
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
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
Started well, but faded quickly.
Gift from Faulkenberry
I had this for an anniversary a few years back, and it trumped every white I've ever had. Rich mineral and just plain delicious. Long finish. The most affordable equivalent i've found is the viognier marsanne blends like d'Arenburg McLaren Vale The Hermit crab. Make an evening of it. Flavors change, plus the alchohol content is a bit over the top..

(70% merlot, 20% cabernet franc and 10% cabernet sauvignon) Ruby-red. Perfumed, sweet nose offers red cherry, raspberry, cinnamon and mineral aromas. Sweet and round on entry, then polished and smooth in the middle, with raspberry and red cherry flav... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Vieux Chateau Certan 1500ml
Reserved aromatically, but the wonderful balance is evident as this young Rhône red reveals its mineral, wet earth, delicate plum, mocha, coffee and blackberry character and subtle, ripe tannins. The wet earth and mineral really shine through on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2010.
Supple and fruity, with creamy cherry, plum and berry notes that are elegant and polished, finishing with hints of coffee and spice. Best from 1999 through 2005.
This is an impressively rich, intense, espresso-style of Cabernet at a very appealing price. While quite reliant on jazzy oak and its mocha-laced appearance, there are lots of complex and concentrated blackberry and currant flavors, finishing with plush tannins. Drink now through 2010.
Toasty, rich nose of spicy oak, black cherries and plum. Quite deep and concentrated. Chocolate, cedar, and spice in the background. The ripe, velvety flavors of black cherries and currants are accentuated by rich, creamy oak.
Tasted alongside Cabs costing far more, this wine held its own, as it usually does. Itrsquo;s rich in currant, cedar and vanilla flavors, yet dry and superbly balanced. Keeps its harmony through a long, satisfying finish. Drink now.
