Winemaker's Notes

This superb wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère, three varieties originally from Bordeaux that have been carefully cultivated by Santa Rita. Triple C benefits from the best of both the Old and New World, combining the elegance of traditional grape varieties with state-of-the-art New World techniques. The specially selected grapes are grown at Santa Rita's Alto Jahuel Estate in Maipo Valley, Chile, approximately 40 miles from Santiago. Triple C represents a new style in Chilean winemaking, becoming a true expression of Chilean nature; complex and abundant.

Delicious with wild game and fowl, ripe cheeses, and spicy red meats. The wine is unfiltered in order to completely maintain its character, therefore we recommend decanting it before serving.

Critical Acclaim

"In the three vintages we’ve tasted this blend of Cabernet Franc, Cab Sauvignon and Carmenère, it has never slipped below 90 points. This 2005 version is the best yet; it has fine oak up front, with fresh berry aromas lurking below. The palate is sly, sexy and whole, with flavors of plum, cassis and leather. Secure on the finish, and overall there are no faults to be found. Drink now or hold for another couple of years. "

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
