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..
External Reviews for Veramonte Primus the Blend Colchagua Valley
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.
Ripe black cherry and plum aromas mingle with toasty oak and a hint of leather. In the mouth, ripe black cherry, plum and currant flavors are beautifully in balance with sweet oak carrying through to a long finish.
Distinctive aromas of bright fruit with subtle hints of dried herbs and toasted oak. Flavors are rich and dense, with black cherry, currant, mixed berry and plum characters.
This Napa Valley Cabernet is rich, full and round from the initial taste and continuing as it fills the mouth, leading to a long, lingering, polished finish. Eponymous has tremendous presence and yet is in wonderful harmony with soft, accessible tannins adding appropriate structure to this alluring wine. - Winery
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.
Cushioned and complete, this does Napa right. Itrsquo;s not complex, just filled with ripe cherry fruit and the pie-crust scent of oak, perfumed and tight. The structure of alcohol and roasted tannins keep it at a distance; give it time or lamb sausages to rein it in.
