Viña Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2013

External Review by Palm Bay International:

/ Dark red. Pungent redcurrant, cherry and underbrush on the nose, with slow-building tobacco and licorice adding complexity. This suave midweight offers ripe red fruit flavors, gentle tannins and good finishing sweetness. A great value, with the complexity of wines costing three times more.

Santa Rita was founded in 1880, by a distinguished entrepreneur of those times, Mr. Domingo Fernández Concha in the area of Alto Jahuel where the main installations of the winery are currently located. From the very beginning, he introduced fine French varieties, winemakers and the most advanced winemaking techniques. From the end of the XIX century until the mid 70´s, Santa Rita developed under the ownership of Mr. Vicente García - Huidobro, father of the famous Chilean poet Vicente Huidobro Fernández. In 1980, the Grupo Claro acquired the Santa Rita property, giving a strong impulse to the enterprise in all of its scope, introducing great technological improvements and wine elaboration techniques unknown in Chile at that time. At the end of the 80´s a great expansion period for Santa Rita starts, sustained by the great momentum experienced by its exports and the excellent reputation acquired by its products, which obtained important awards and worldwide recognition.

Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - 87 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva is a spicy, forward wine with savory red and black fruit flavors, a supple texture, and an easy-to-understand personality. Drink this very good value over the next 2-3 years.

Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 - 89 Points & A Top 100 Best Buy of the Year, Wine Enthusiast/ Lots of big fruit is what defines this easy-to-like wine. The nose throws off equal parts cassis, raspberry and plum, while the palate is saturated and dense, with pleasing cassis, plum and chocolate flavors...This is your classic Best Buy Cab all the way around.

/ Forward aromas of black fruit compote, mint, earth and wood. Spicy flavors of plum, flint, coffee and dust. Minerally, very intense finish is full of fruit.

/ Dark but focused with a solid core of black currant, loam, mint and tobacco flavors followed by smoke and grilled herb notes on the finish.

Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 - 90 Points & Best Buy, Wine & Spirits/ Year's Best Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. This ripe cabernet comes from vines growing in the Alto Jahuel region, one of the warmest spots in the Alto Maipo, and you can feel that warmth in its intense red fruit notes. This is a substantial cabernet sauvignon, with a wild texture. Pour it now with morcilla.
