A rich, massive wine with smooth, supple tannins and dense, multi-layered flavors. Primus is comprised of Carmenere, widely planted in Bordeaux in the 1800s, but now found only in Chile. This ususual cousin of Merlot produces wines of deep, exotic flavors and great aging potential.

I discovered this wine (a different vintage) at Cafe Atlantico in Washington, DC several years ago when I fell for the "cool name, let's try it" method of choosing something to go along with my salmon entree. It was the best dumb-luck wine decision I've made. I promptly went out an bought a case of this wine for its fruity-peppery-spicy finish. Goes great with salmon and steak, with spicy meals and hearty stews. While the other Veramonte wines are consistently good, this Carmenere blend is a true find.
