Winemaker Notes

Ruby red color. Aromatics commanded by a bouquet of ripe fruit, black currant and blueberries, lend freshness and elegance exquisitely mingled with delicate notes of oak, tobacco and vanilla lend sweetness and persistence. On the palate, there is highly concentrated, intensely flavored and rich in tannins, with a full, magnificent body and a remarkable, sleek finish.

Pair with: steaks, venison, game birds and ripe blue cheeses.

Wine Enthusiast
Despite cool conditions in 2011, or quite possibly because of them, this is thriving. Aromas of cedar, earth, spice and berry fruits are stylish and comported. The palate on this perennially superb Cabernet is focused, intense and balanced. Flavors of spicy red currant and briary berry are thorough and finish with length on a mocha note. Drink through 2026.

The aromas here shows currants and roses and follow through to a medium to full body, with juicy fruit and ultra fine tannins and a delicious finish. Drink or hold

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Casa Real Cabernet Sauvignon is a classical Maipo Cabernet with its minty aromas, cedar wood, tobacco, spices and anherbal twist. The palate is seamless, juicy with very good balance, refined tannins and a remarkable length. It's not easy to reach the level of the 2010, but this 2011 is almost there. Bravo!
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Plush and spicy, with rich-tasting, juicy flavors of dark cherry, raspberry and plum tart. Delivers sleek mineral and slate notes, leading to a finish that oozes with chocolate mousse and cream accents, with hints of mint. Drink now through 2019.

Santa Rita Winery Video

Heritage and enterprise are hallmarks of Santa Rita, one of Chile's premier wine estates. Founded in 1880 by Domingo Fernandez in Chile's Maipo Valley, this historic property was among the first to pioneer plantings of European grape varieties in Chile.

In 1980, it was acquired by its present owner, Ricardo Claro, under whom Santa Rita has reaped the rewards of continuous investment, resulting in a period of impressive growth, during which the winery has consolidated its position in the vanguard of Chile's most successful and innovative estates. Initiatives include the highly successful launch of Santa Rita’s 120 Series of wines and a range of ultra-premium wines, notably the highly acclaimed Casa Real and Triple C. Wide-ranging enhancements embrace the purchase of choice new vineyards, plantings with top quality clones, improved trellising and irrigation, balanced viticulture, restricted yields, later harvesting, individual block farming, small-lot vinification, and an increased emphasis on sustainable agriculture.

Today Santa Rita exports to more than 70 countries worldwide. The property accounts for outstanding vineyards in Chile’s most important appellations - the Maipo Valley; Casablanca; Rapel; Apalta; Leyda and Curico - enabling access to diverse climates and terrain.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
