Veramonte Red Blend Primus 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Ein Wein von grosser Klasse kündigt sich hier bereits im Bouquet an. Der Sinneseindruck in der Nase ist vielschichtig und kompakt. Diese Cuvée von VERAMONTE - nicht von ungefähr PRIMUS genannt - bietet viel: eine nachhaltige, tiefgründige Struktur, eine kräftige, samtige Textur von reifen, samtigen Gerbstoffen sowie eine Aromatik, die uns an traditionelle Weine der besten Weinanbauregionen erinnert. Das Finale ist anhaltend, harmonisch, komplex und verführerisch.

A deep purple, garnet interesting blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Carmenère. Smoke, oak, dark berry fruit, some pepper, spice and some earthiness with nice lush mouth-filling tannins. Well balanced, but let it breath for a half hour in glass. Ready now, but this one will cellar nicely. Under 20 bucks from SPECS.

A Merlot-dominant wine with Cabernet and Carmenere, Primus shows licorice and raisin on the nose with concentrated black fruit carrying the flavor profile. There's ample warmth and spice on the finish, and a light tannic structure holding it all together.

Smoky and fleshy, with plum and black cherry notes backed by hints of cocoa, grilled herb and mineral. Fleshy, smoky finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère. Drink now through 2007.

This red is based on Carmenère, a rare old Bordeaux grape that was widely planted there in the 1700s and is currently undergoing a revival in Chile. Rich yet elegant, this full-bodied wine from Franciscan Estates' excellent new Chilean property is a top-notch find, and enough to convert anyone who hasn't yet discovered the glories of Chilean wine.

The 2007 Primus is a glass-coating opaque purple with aromas of tar, licorice, pepper, blackcurrant, and blueberry. Youthful, structured, and balanced, it will evolve for 5andndash;7 years and offer prime drinking from 2015 to 2025.
