Food Pairings for Viña Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva
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
Solid purple in color, berries on the nose, smokey at the finish.
It had an offensive nose. Very bitter. Not a good wine.
Rating 85 .Somehow disappointing. Strong vegetal nose and taste. Tannins slightly bitter. Full body long finish. Smell is to annoying for me to warrant a better rating.
I found this Cab a bit restrained, with no hard edges. Very soft tannins, a pleasant nose, and controlled fruit with some nice herbal notes. Very easy drinking.
It's a big wine, elegant, enough fruits to carry the American Oak (?), white pepper, you almost need cutlery to get through the wine... 92/100
External Reviews for Viña Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva
Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - 83 points, Wine Spectator/ Mint and roasted sage notes are pushed by more dark toast, while the core of black cherry and plum fruit takes a more reserved role...
Wines from Chile, Argentina earn an olé!/ Here is an especially good one to look for: Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2005.
/ 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.
/ Give Santa Rita a good Cabernet vintage and they will make good wines from the top down to the everyday level. The latter category is well represented with this exuberant, balanced wine. The nose is ripe but natural, while the cherry and berry flavors rush over the palate and roll along the finish. Very nice in this price range.
/ Very nice nose with honeysuckle blossom, orange, Gala apple, violet, and menthol. Spicy finish with black pepper and soft tannins. Duck or lamb; firm chesses.
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.
