  • red wine
  • W&S89

Winemaker's Notes

Spends an average of eight months in small French and American oak barrels, resulting in an exceptionally round, mouth-filling wine. Ripe cherry and currant flavors, with a velvety finish. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

"Surprisingly powerful and rich in fruit for its price, this offers black currant and cassis over youthfully rustic tannins. Give it some pork."

We bought one bottle and then came back for a case. Very balanced, very smooth, goes well with anything. A very easy cabernet to drink.

The Santa Rita 120 Cab Sav was given an 89 ranking from W&S, so I expected something better. I felt the price was unbelievable for a ranked wine and it was a bit too good to be true. This wine has yet to balance out which throws its flavors all over the shot. The first thing I tasted after a sip was a strong alchoholic kick and then some cherry, clove and vanilla from the oak. The smell was also very berry-like and sadly, also a bit alchoholic. If you store this wine for 2-3 years it should balance out ok, but it will never be a great wine. For the price you cannot really go wrong.

Bébe - Chicago, IL (read all my reviews)

Its aroma is so beautiful, the opposite of earthy, light and airy, almost like flowers. It has a slightly dry, tart taste, and it's gentle enough to be matched with cornish hen, which I've heard it's not the traditional way. It worked really well regardless. I thought it was light bodied, one of my friends argued it was medium bodied. Clearly we're not experts, but we were all very impressed. I usually bring this along as my host gift.

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....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
