An expressive blend that brings together the diversity of each of our estates and the best adapted varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon is the basis, and provides structure, while Merlot adds red fruit and vitality on the palate. Carménère delivers density and smoothness, combined with the soft and complex finish of the Petit Verdot. Cabernet Franc adds elegance and persistance. The 2015 vintage was a warm season for the Colchagua Valley, with lower yields than a normal year, giving way to great concentration and structure. As a result, we obtained terrific fruit and intensity of flavors. Pair with grilled or baked meats with thick sauces, gorgonzola cheese.

James Suckling"A generous and rich red with round and chewy tannins. So much lovely ripe fruit with currant and hints of walnut character. Full and beautiful. Gorgeous wine. 40% cabernet, 25% merlot, 24% carmenere, 8% petit verdot and the rest cab franc. Drink or hold."-JS

Wine AdvocateI found nice integration and balance in the 2015 Primus The Blend, which consists of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Carmenere, 25% Merlot, 8% Petite Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc from Colchagua. It matured in French barrique for 18 months. The oak is nicely folded into the fruit, and the aromas and flavors are focused. It has fine-grained tannins, good freshness and overall balance. 180,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2016.

Wine SpectatorA ripe, muscular red, with some smoky accents to the sanguine flavors of boysenberry, mulberry and dark plum. The spicy finish has milk chocolate, dried herb and ferrous notes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenère, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2020. 26,500 cases made, 15,000 cases imported.
