External Reviews for Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Casa Real Alto Santa Rita Old Vines Vineyard
This Chilean Cabernet displays mild tannins, berries and rich spice. Itrsquo;s medium in body and perfectly balanced. The patriots the wine is named after would be proud.
A medium-bodied Chilean Cabernet with sweet berry and cherry flavors with a touch of tasty spice, mild tannins and perfect balance. Itrsquo;s wonderful with food.
This perennial Best Buy shines in 2005. Itrsquo;s clean, inviting and ready to go as piercing cherry, plum and cola flavors make a stand. Flush, warm and fairly full-bodied, 120 is one of those bargain lines that satisfies. More than 300,000 cases made, so itrsquo;s good stuff made on a grand scale.
Lightly firm, with a hint of cherry pit weaving through the black cherry, plum and tobacco fruit. There’s a solid, medium-weight finish. Drink now.
Surprisingly powerful and rich in fruit for its price, this offers black currant and cassis over youthfully rustic tannins. Give it some pork.
The light berry scents of this gentle Cabernet bring violets and foresty moss to mind. A touch of gruff warmth in the tannins will bond well with grilled meats.
What Malbec has been for Argentina, I’m hoping Carménère will be for Chile! The Santa Rita is lusher than many others, but with the same intense spice and herbal notes that hallmark the grape. Deep black and red currant notes dominate on the palate, with hints of anise, pepper, allspice and green pepper. Perfect for barbecued items, but also works exceptionally well with heavy mushroom-dishes and roasted meats.
