Santa Rita Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
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 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Wine Review
An amazing wine for the price point! Full-bodied, rich and layered as you would expect from a $25 wine. Aromas of fleshy ripe black plum and blackberry. Perfect for potluck gatherings and movie night. 4.4/5 Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: red meats, pork, ripe cheese and pasta. Heavenly Hamburger Wine

|Fermented with selected yeasts at temperatures between 25° and 28°C with high|
color extraction at the beginning of the this process. This was followed by fermentation at a lower temperature so as to ensure a different extraction of the skin components. A long post maceration at low temperatures assured an adequate extraction for the ageing of the wine.
60% of the wine was aged in a combination of American oak barrels for 8 months.
The remaining 40% was aged exclusively in stainless steel vats until bottling.
