Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.8%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep, intense ruby red. There is a 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.

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

"A blend based on cabernet franc (55 percent) with cabernet sauvignon and carmenere, this is a powerful Triple C with muscular black fruit. The concentration is matched by tannins as strong as steel girders. Despite being six years old, it seems not to have aged at all. Cellar it a few more years to let the wine's complexity develop."

It's near impossible to find a stockier, more potent wine anywhere near this price range. Pine forest aromas mix with dark black cherry, blackberry, clove, cinnamon, and cedar cigar box on the nose, all of which echo into the palate tied to massive, beckoning tannins. One of my favorites already, yet it still has the structure and youth to age plenty more. 94.

Learn About Santa Rita Map ItMap It

Heritage and enterprise are hallmarks of Santa Rita, one of Chile's premier wine estates.

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....
