A blend that combines each of our estates' diversity and their best varieties. The base is Cabernet Sauvignon, which provides structure, while Merlot delivers red fruit and vitality in mouth. Carménère adds weight and softness, as well as spices that combine beautifully with Petit Verdot's smooth, complex finish. And finally, Cabernet Franc presents elegance and persistence. The best lots are harvested and blended. One third of the wine is aged for 12 months in 5000 L foudres, the rest in French oak barrels, 18% new.

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.
