Nice Red Blend from Chile

 By: Cresta

Part of my Valentine’s Day gift from the hubby was a bottle of red wine.

It’s been kind of chaotic at my house lately so we were just able to sit down and drink this wine together. We had it with dinner the other night – grilled ribeye steaks.

Primus The Blend 2008 is a flavorful red blend from Veramonte Vineyards in Colchagua Valley, Chile. Made of Cabernet Sauvignon (46%), Syrah (20%), Carmenere (19%) and Merlot (15%), The Blend is aged in French and American oak for 14 months.

Deep red in color. Intense ripe fruit with what I think is a very appealing spice flavor. Full-bodied and nicely balanced with a long finish. Smooth and easy to drink. A little too easy, I guess, as we had no trouble finishing the bottle. Definitely a big happy face.

Average price: $17-$20.
