Santa Carolina Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva de Familia 2012

Valle del Maipo, Region del Valle Central, ChileViña Santa Carolina has been producing this wine for more than 100 years, hence the special Reserva de Familia designation. Worn leather, subtle dried cassis, fine spice. The deep, firmer palate shows dark chocolate, figs, cassis, black cherries and spiced graphite. Fine tannins are sueded on the palate - downy and tactile. Drinking well now (especially with lamb) but will hold and knit well over the next 7 years.Tasted: 14 October 2014Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
