Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Casa Real Alto Santa Rita Old Vines Vineyard 2008
Rating 88. Good everyday wine with a different taste . Nose with hint of berries, full body and dry with bold taste notes. For the price of $ 6.- this is a bargain you should try
I like it... a very quaffable wine but I found it very high in teh acidity... it may be just me but apart from that... very nice
My local wine guy recommended this wine to me, but I was disappointed. It has an awkward finish that left a bad taste in my mouth. I kept expecting it to open up the second and third days, but didn't get there. It wasn't horrible, but not something I'd buy again.
A best buy in my book. Medium bodies with a silky mouth fell. A nose of hickory with hints of blackberry. Rich in tannins with a subtle wild berry taste. Long, lasting finish.
My Rating 89: Firm good fruit body with complex flavors. Nose strong perfumed with hint of Berries. Real bargain for $ 9 at Costco
Rating 89. This wine is full bodied with strong fruit and tannins with some oak on the nose . Nose also reveal fruity complex aroma
Earthy scent. Dry, tangy and a bit powdery.

Has a dark, smoky bacon-fat note, with coffee, mushroom and currant flavors underneath. Chewy, beefy finish. Wins on guts, not polish. Drink now through 2002.

Polished and smooth, this well-integrated red balances black cherry, blackberry, tobacco and light herbal flavors. It has harmony and finesse. Drink now through 2003.
Inky ruby. Slightly high-toned aromas and flavors of blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Dense yet lively, with good lift and juicy intensity to the dark berry flavors. The lingering finish features building tannins and notes of dark chocolate and herbs.
