Primus The Blend, Colchagua Valley

Primus The Blend, Colchagua Valley

A blend of about 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 25% Carmenère. The balance is made up with small quantities of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc: the inclusion of which and percentage make-up varies from vintage to vintage in this meritage blend. The wine is aged for about a year in French oak barrels, about a quarter new. The nose shows aromatic notes of blackberry, blueberry and cherry with hints of cassis, leather and dried herbs. The palate is intense with plum, strawberry and blueberry fruit alongside integrated vanilla oak.
