Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Color : Deep Red. Aroma : Complex and pleasant where mature red fruit notes coffe and toast stand out which in a bottle give an exceptional bouquet. Flavors: Tannins of good concentration which give roundness and structure which is complemented with a pleasant fruit taste at the end.

In 1917 a young Pedro Pavone-Voglino left his homeland in Italy’s Piamonte wine region and embarked upon the long journey to the New World. His pioneering spirit led him to Chile and allowed him to come to know the beauty and benefits of the Maipo Valley. Pavone Family Captivated by the area’s landscape and its particular qualities for wine production, he decided to settle there and acquired the land that is now Viña Santa Ema in 1931. He began producing grapes for vinification, which, due to their quality were sold to well-known Chilean wineries. He married Marta Arbea Perrot in the small town of Isla de Maipo, where their children and descendents still live today. In 1956, ‘Don’ Pedro and his oldest son, Félix Pavone-Arbea, began making and marketing bottled wines that soon earned recognition by the industry and consumers alike. Félix Pavone continued the work of his father, married Catalina Moreno, settled into the family home in Isla de Maipo and had four children: María Cecilia, Félix, Rossana, and Pilar, who have all actively worked in the winery since their youth. In the late 1960s the winery purchased a significant amount of land in the Peumo sector of the Cachapoal Valley. This area is particularly known for its high quality red varietals, such as Carignan, Carignan, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and, of course, Carmenère. The company’s first exports began in 1986 with shipments to Brazil. Today Santa Ema wines are exported to more than 30 countries in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. The primary market is the United States, where Santa Ema is consistently among the top 10 Chilean wineries in terms of sales. In Chile, Santa Ema has earned a solid position by becoming one of the highest-selling Chilean wineries in restaurants, hotels, and wine shops. El Peral In 2003 the company inaugurated its modern new El Peral vinification facility in Isla de Maipo, surrounded by 50 hectares of estate vineyards. The 3.2 million-liter winery is equipped with the highest technology available for fine wine production and is widely recognized as a local landmark. Over the years, Santa Ema has been recognized by the most important national and international organizations and has earned numerous medals in competitions such as the Concours Mundial de Bruxelles and distinctions in prestigious international trade magazines. It was recently named to the Wine Spectator’s list of Top 20 World’s Finest Value Brands, Wine Advocate rated four Santa Ema wines above 90 points, and Wine & Spirits named it Value Winery of the Year. But for Santa Ema, the most important distinction of all is the preference of its consumers around the world to appreciate the work of three generations dedicated to the production of consistently high quality wines.

Big, dark, and smooth... I love this wine! Tried it for the first time yesterday and returned for a case. I aerated using the Vinturi and the edges smoothed right out. The wine is like silk in your mouth after the aeration, full-bodied, nice dark fruit - blackberry - with a bit of espresso. YUM!

A guilty pleasure at this price. Thick and furry on the tongue with black fruit in the middle. Closer to rhubarb pie than cherry pie.

I purchase this one fairly regularly from Costco! One of my favorites and I like the Merlot as well. They also have a Carmenere which I have not been able to find here but I did have during a business trip to Chile.

They're selling the 2007 at Total Wine in Sarasota where I buy it, not the 2005. Friends rave about the Santa Ema Merlot, so try that too. We just find the Merlot a little fruity and like the serious taste of the Cab.

We have come to like keeping a supply of Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon around the house. I think we are getting the 2007 now, not the 2005. It benefits from sitting out in the air or running it through the Vinturi, I think. A wine you can live with.
