Santa Rita Carmenere 120 2011
External Reviews for Santa Rita Carmenere 120
Pehuen 2008 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ With cool, herbal aromas of cola, pine, juniper, fine oak and savory berry fruits, this is a fine Carmenère. The palate is full, deep and still fresh after several years in the bottle. Flavors of stewed cherry, baked plum and cassis come with no shortage of savory support, while the finish is saucy in taste, with raciness, gravitas and length.
Medalla Real Carmenere 2008 - 90 Points, Wine & Spirits/ The herbal notes so characteristic of carmenere appear on the palate, harmoniously melding with notes of cherries, floral details and toasty scents of oak. This is a deeply flavored carmenere with great softness.
Medalla Real Carmenere 2008 - Boca Delray Life/ Bordeaux-like but very tropical, masculine with an exceptional smoothness; complex and rewarding.
Medalla Real Carmenere 2008 - Wine Spectator/ A ripe, smokey style, with plum sauce and coffee notes leading the way, followed by tobacco and melted fig notes.
Pehuen 2007 - 92 points, International Wine Cellar/ Saturated ruby. Pungent, intensely perfumed aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, licorice and vanilla, with slow-building spiciness and a smoky overtone. Broad, palate-staining blackcurrant and mulberry flavors are given spine by juicy acidity and pick up a bitter chocolate nuance with air. Shows very good energy on the oak-spiced finish, which clings with noteworthy tenacity and lingering sweetness. This wine has more than enough fruit to support its oak.
Pehuen 2005 - 90 Points, Wine Spectator/ A muscular, loamy style, with coffee, licorice and black currant notes frame by a dusting of cocoa powder, followed by a solid, polished finish.
Medalla Real Carmenere 2007 - 90 Points, Wine Spectator/ Wine Spectator's Great Buys: "Very polished, delivering a hefty beam of plum and violet."
