James Suckling
A red with fresh herb and currant and berry notes. Full body, Thai basil and currant bush character. Juicy finish. Ripe tannins.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The impressive 2016 Primus Cabernet Sauvignon shows peppery varietal character, restraint and austerity, corresponding to a cool year like 2016. It has abundant, fine-grained tannins and a dry and serious finish. 30,000 bottles were produced.

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.
