Santa Rita Triple C Valle del Maipo Red 2010 - 91 Points (WE)
91 Points, Wine Enthusiast - "Slightly green, minty aromas of tobacco, spice, purple flower and sawdust filter onto a structured, lively palate. Flavors of dark berry fruits are accented by mint, coffee and chocolate, while the finish hits with controlled heat and herbal berry flavors. Drink this Cabernet Franc – Cabernet Sauvignon – Carménère blend through 2020."
This superb wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere, three varieties originally from Bordeaux that have been carefully cultivated by Santa Rita. Triple C benefits from the best of the Old and New World, combining the elegance of traditional grape varieties with state-of-the-art New World wine making techniques. The specially selected grapes are grown at Santa Rita's Alto Jahuel Estate in Maipo Valley.
Well-developed bouquet with a rich combination of blackcurrant and the floral nuances associated with delicate undertones of graphite, tar, chocolate and vanilla.Elegant and well structured, this wine has an excellent balance and wonderful persistence.
