Maipo Valley, Chile
Lively aromas of blackberry, blueberry and dried cherry intertwine with vanilla and cedar notes. A smooth silky texture with fine tannins and balance, providing a beautiful and lingering finish. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Primus vineyards are located on the third alluvial terrace of the Alto Maipo, at the foot of the Andes Mountains. The grapes are hand-picked, double sorted, fermented in open top tanks with native yeasts, and left on the skins after fermentation to gain structure and depth. The best lots of the vintage are selected, blended and aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.
"Red and black currants, raspberries, orange zest, tobacco, cocoa and dried herbs on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins and bright acidity. Crisp and vibrant fruit character, with a zesty, firm finish. Vegan. Sustainable. Drink or hold." - 91 points, James Suckling
"A finely chiseled red, with elegance and depth, showing forest floor, lavender and balsam notes around a lively mouthful of mineral-laced red currant and plum. Ends with well-formed tannins and peppercorn details. Drink now through 2032. 7,000 cases made, 2,900 cases imported." - 90 points, Wine Spectator
