Santa Rita ‘120’ Valle Central Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile
Review Date : 14-Apr-2016
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is reserved and tightly bound with light and soft aromas of blackcurrants and cassis entwined with dark herbs and stalk elements. The aromatics unfold some reductive mineral and black earth elements to add interest. Medium-bodied and well-proportioned, the plate features a tight core of sweet blackcurrant fruit along with cassis, minty herbs and black mineral nuances. The fruit is underlined by fine-grained, supple tannins and the wine carries to a lingering finish of cassis and herbs. This is an elegantly concentrated, fine-grained, blackcurranty Cabernet Sauvignon with herb and mineral notes. Match with herb-marinated lamb and beef dishes over the next 3+ years. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Central Valley fermented to 13.5% alc., with 20%of the on aged 8 months in French oak. 16.5/20 Apr 2016 RRP $14.99
