Veramonte Primus Malbec 2013
Primus Malbec shows raspberry, plum and blueberry flavors with hints of violet, black pepper and tobacco. This is a full-bodied wine with well-integrated oak and a lengthy finish. Primus Malbec represents the unique character of high-altitude, old-vines from Mendoza and comes primarily from vineyards in one of Mendoza's oldest regions. The grapes are hand harvested, cooled and double sorted. Whole berry fermentations occur in temperature controlled concrete and stainless steel tanks. The wines age for 14 months in French oak. Food pairing: Barbequed meats and chicken, dishes with spice and tomato-based sauces.
