Winemaker Notes

Primus Cabernet Sauvignon is produced in the priviledged location of the Apalta 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. Perfect with steak and lamb.

TA 94
Tim Atkin

The same grower has supplied this varietal Cabernet since the beginning and deserves a round of applause. The vineyard is at 600 metres in the Alto Maipo and it shows in the freshness and precision of the wine. Subtle wooded, with well-toned tannins. 2020-30. Alcohol: 14%

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The faintly reductive 2015 Primus Cabernet Sauvignon needed some air to get rid of those initial aromas, so decanting in advance might not be a bad idea. It's elegant and subtle, while it kept concentration and good clout.

Primus Sofía Araya - Winemaker Winery Image
Primus is a leading brand in the Chilean premium segment and a preeminent example of Chilean quality capabilities. The name Primus is Latin and means “the first” or “the first among its peers”, and for good reason. The winery was founded more than 20 years ago by Agustin Hunneus. It was truly a pioneering brand as the first blend of the signature red grapes of Chile: Cabernet and Carmenere. Today, The Blend is still the standard bearer for Primus, and has been joined by two single varietal wines: Primus Cabernet Sauvignon and Primus Carmenere. Fruit is selected from the most renowned areas in Chile for red varieties: Apalta, a sub-region Colchagua, and Maipo. These are food wines, known for their balance, elegance and freshness. Aging in oak barrels and foudres gives elegance and finesse to the wines. All farming practices are organic.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
