Description: Winemaker's Notes
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 the Old and New World, combining the elegance of traditional grape varieties with state-of-the-art New World wine making techniques. The specially selected grapes are grown at Santa Rita's Alto Jahuel Estate in Maipo Valley.

Well-developed bouquet with a rich combination of blackcurrant and the floral nuances associated with delicate undertones of graphite, tar, chocolate and vanilla.Elegant and well structured, this wine has an excellent balance and wonderful persistence.

Critical Acclaim
JS 93pts
James Suckling - "A red with complex aromas of blackberries, blueberries and mint. Full body, with fine tannins and flavorful finish. It seduces you with all the dark fruit character in a reserved way. Aged about 17 months in barrel. 65% cabernet franc, 30% cabernet sauvignon, 5% carmenere. "
