Natalie's Score: 90/100

An intense and aromatic nose of mint and blackberry with plush fleshy plums on the palate. Nicely balanced with full-bodied goodness.

Mark Britton rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

It's a basic cab sauv loaded with fruit, but the tannins are aggressive and overpowering. My tasting notes actually say "should have been so much better." But it's certainly a nice wine, just not as good as you would expect from a Gran Reserva from the Maipo Valley.
A profound Cabernet from Santa Rita’s home vineyard in Alto Jahuel. The hue is dark and opaque, while the nose is deep and earthy, but also intensely fruity. Shows fine structure and a lot of black cherry and cassis. Grabby, tight and ageable through at least 2013. The real deal in affordable Chilean higher-end CS; offers a little of everything, from spice to herbs to olive to fine fruit. Score: 91 Source: Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast
