Santa Rita Triple C 2015 (750ml)
This outstanding wine has a deep and intense ruby-red color. The bouquet is revealed in layer upon layer of complexity that appear throughout the tasting and vary with time in the glass. Red fruits and black fruits such as black currant and blueberry are present along with notes of tobacco, chocolate, and spice. Elegant and well balanced with good structure and enough depth to age well over the years to come.

This has a rich array of redcurrants and brambleberries with a cassis thread that turns to blackberry pastilles on the palate, delivering a plush, smooth finish. A blend of 65 per cent cabernet franc, 30 per cent cabernet sauvignon and five per cent carmenere. Drink in 2024.
Mouthwatering flavors of dark cherry, kirsch and plum tart are loaded with Asian spice accents. The creamy finish is ripe and rich, with dark chocolate and mocha notes. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère. Drink now through 2025.
Triple C is a blend of Cabernet Franc (65%), Sauvignon (30%) and Carménère (5%), all from Maipo Alto, a sunny area with alluvial soils. Maroon with a hint of brick, it offers black olive, oak and tar notes over a bed of herbs and raspberry and blueberry jam. Sugary on the palate, it presents firm tannins and good volume, body and heft. A quintessentially Chilean wine.
