Buy Santa Rita Triple C
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2008 Triple C, first produced in 1997, is a blend of 65% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Carmenere from Apalta, aged for 17 months in new French oak barrels, which rests in bottle for at least one year before being sold. The Cabernet Franc is fruity, floral and gives the wine character, which has abundant notes of black fruit, less minty character (because of the higher humidity), as menthol develops when the plant is stressed by drought. This is elegant, with fine tannins. Drink 2014-2022.”,,,  (Jun 2014)

Wine Spectator 93 points - A powerful red, with a surplus of dark plum, blackberry and dark currant flavors that are pure and focused, wrapped in layers of vanilla and cream. The long finish is filled with dark chocolate and wild herb notes. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere. Drink now through 2020. 3,100 cases made. –KM Rated #47 in Wine Spectator’s 2013 Top 100 (Dec 31 2013)

From Alto Jahuel and Maipo Valley. The climate is semi-arid Mediterranean. Rain is mainly concentrated in the winter and strongly influenced by the "El Niño" phenomenon, which increases rainfall frequency. In this parcel of land in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, night temperatures are quite low due to the flow of cold air coming down from the mountains. This causes a thermal oscillation that can surpass 68°F. The soils are of alluvial origin, stratified and gently sloped, of medium depth, loamy texture and basic pH.
Wine maker notes
The three varieties are vinified separately and stored in oak immediately after malolactic fermentation is completed, using new medium-toast French barrels from four cooperage and four different forests. Each wine was aged separately for 17 months and blended just before bottling.

Producer
Heritage and enterprise are hallmarks of Santa Rita, one of Chile’s premier wine estates. Founded in 1880 in Chile’s Maipo Valley, this historic property was among the first to pioneer plantings of European grape varieties in Chile. In 1980, it was acquired by its present owner, Gruppo Claro, under whom Santa Rita has reaped the rewards of continuous investment, resulting in a period of impressive growth, during which the winery has consolidated its position in the vanguard of Chile’s most successful and innovative estates. Initiatives include the highly successful launch of Santa Rita’s 120 Series and Reserve wines and a range of ultra-premium wines, notably the highly acclaimed Casa Real, Triple C, the Floresta range and most recently, Pehuen. Wide-ranging enhancements include the purchase of choice new vineyards, plantings with top quality clones, improved trellising and irrigation, balanced viticulture, restricted yields, later harvesting, individual block farming, small-lot vinification, and an increased emphasis on sustainable agriculture. The Santa Rita property accounts for outstanding vineyards in Chile’s most important appellations -- the Maipo Valley; Apalta; Casablanca; Rapel; Leyda and Curico -- enabling access to diverse climates and terrain. Visitors to Santa Rita can look forward to accommodation at the estate’s luxury hotel, the Casa Real, with its breathtaking 100-acre gardens, its magnificent museum housing a breathtaking collection of pre-Columbian artifacts, or enjoy dinner at the property’s landmark restaurant, the Dona Paula.
