Santa Rita Triple C 2007

Santa Rita Triple C 750ML 2007      
Sku: 19405

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 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.

Tasting notes
Color - Deep, intense ruby red Bouquet - Well-developed bouquet with a rich combination of blackcurrant and the floral nuances associated with delicate undertones of graphite, tar, chocolate and vanilla. Taste - Elegant and well structured, this wine has an excellent balance and wonderful persistence.

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Dec 2012)
The 2007 Triple C is a blend of 65% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carmenere that is aged in new French oak for 20 months. The palate is full-bodied with succulent, ripe tannins, lovely red berry fruit laced with balsamic and orange rind that leads to a nicely composed, muscular finish that manages to retain fine focus. The oak is neatly folded into this red blend and it should merit a couple of years in bottle. Drink 2013-2020.

Wine maker notes
The three varieties are vinified separately and stored in new, medium-toast French oak immediately after malolactic fermentation is completed. Each wine was aged separately for 17 months and blended just before bottling.

Technical notes
14.7% abv 55% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Carmenere

Food pairing
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.
