Santa Rita Chardonnay 120 2013
External Reviews for Santa Rita Chardonnay 120
/ Dark and muscular, with lots of tobacco, cocoa, loam and currant notes supported by dense but fresh tannins. Has ample length on the finish. Not as dynamic as previous vintages, but still outstanding.
/ The 1997 Casa Real was royal, and the ’99 is even better. It’s rich, deep and lavishly oaked. The concentration is intense but it’s not overly tight or tannic. In every way it’s a dead ringer for sweet, luscious fruit-forward Napa Cabernet. Plum, coffee and cream share center stage on the stylish finish.
2002 Casa Real - Descorchados, 95 Points and "Best Chilean Red"/
Drinks with Les Dames: Cecilia Torres, Santa Rita/ A great example of how well Santa Rita’s upper-tier wines can age, this one has smoothed out a bit and has taken on a lusher quality than when it was first released. Rich, ripe blackberry and currant flavors, with roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate and sweet, smoky earthy notes that fold together on a long finish.
100 Best Wines of 2007/ From Carneros Viejo, a vineyard planted in 1962 on Santa Rita's estate in Buin, this traditional red has been one of the finest examples of Chilean cabernet sauvignon since the first release in 1989. The 2001 offers complex notes of leather and earth, sweet spicy flavors and exuberantly ripe red fruit. Soft and deeply concentrated, this has the potential to develop for another five years or more.
/ A classic cabernet from Alto Maipo, Casa Real offers an exuberant character in this warm vintage with aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and cassis. The palate is tense with muscular tannins and acidity, while the fruit concentration fills that structure with charm.
/ Funky barnyard with cedar, cassis, wet hay, toasty oak, plum, and dried fruit on the nose. Inky black fruit on the palate with smooth tannins. Fatty beef; braised brisket; short ribs with spices.
