2004 Santa Rita Triple C Maipo Valley Proprietary Red 750ml
This outstanding wine has an intense, rich ruby red color. Its well developed bouquet is a rich combination of ripe, black fruits, blackcurrant and the mineral nuances associated to cinnamon and spice notes with delicate undertones of vanilla, tobacco and chocolate. Elegant and well structured, this wine has an excellent backbone causing the wine to linger on the palate. Wonderful persistence.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2004 Triple C is composed of 55% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Carmenere. It is a purple-colored wine with a classy nose of pain grille, smoke, herbs, truffle, graphite, blueberry and blackberry. This is followed by a plush wine with ripe, sweet fruit and outstanding integration of oak, tannin, and acidity. It will evolve for 4-6 years and drink well through 2030.
