Santa Rita Triple C 2007

Santa Rita Triple C 750ML 2007      
Sku: 19405

Maipo Valley, Chile From the Alto Jahuel estate within the Maipo Valley. The climate is semi-arid Mediterranean. Rain is mainly concentrated in the winter months and strongly influenced by the ”El Nino” phenomenon, which increases rainfall frequency. In this parcel of land in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, night temperatures are quite low due to the flow of cold air coming down from the mountains. This causes a thermal oscillation that can surpass 68F. The soils are of alluvial origin, stratified and gently sloped, of medium depth, loamy texture and basic pH.

 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

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.
