Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Santa Rita Casa Real Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Wine Review
A rich, full-bodied red with a towering structure and good cellar potential. Built like a Bordeaux but with the power of Chilean fruit. 4.6/5

More Wine Reviews and Ratings
|The 2008 vintage is a surprising balance between the fruit, fine tannins, and|
concentration. More than opulent, this wine is elegant above all else, a characteristic
that recalls its origins and the characteristics of the terroir.
Bright and intense in color, expressive on the nose, fruity, ripe, and bearing notes
of spice that are typical of the terroir. Concentrated and elegant on the palate,
with tremendous balance, which ensures great aging potential.
