Ok. Not the best wine I've ever had, but not the worst either.
Rating 87+ hard to tell still closed in. Firm body with plenty of tannins. Good complexity that needs time. Nose is light but very well balanced. Keep for a couple of years and enjoy. Price relationship very good $ 9.-
An amazing bouquet of spices and flowers, very exotic at this price point and amazingly intense for such a young wine. Would do very well in a blind tasting, I"m sure. Give it some time before drinking, but it will open up.
Full bodied. Smooth finish. $14.99 BM
External Reviews for Vina Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Casa Real Alto
All vineyards are planted in vertical shoot position in order to obtain good sunlight exposure and airing. The crop is restricted to 7-8 ton/ha so as to get concentrated grapes. During the season, irrigation becomes a critical factor for this variety since it is very sensitive to water stress. The idea is to reduce water availability down to pea size to produce medium size berries and vigor control, then allowing the roots to feed the plant with enough water for good ripening, without any excess, while keeping a small growth of leaves at the tip of the shoots.
