    Region: Chile, South America

    Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

    Item no. 93805

    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.

    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.

    Can't beat the price but wine was only so-so. Doesn't seem to deserve the W&S 89 rating. Unbalanced.

    Flavorful but light weight Cab. Goes well with almost everything and you can't beat the price. Bought a case to use as the "house red" for this month.

    This is one of the worst wines EVER. Bitter, no complexity, no depth, acidic, and leaves a horrible after taste. Totally undrinkable. Most of the 2-buck chucks are significantly better, even the bad ones.
