WE 91 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "This Cabernet delivers a complete package at an incredibly attractive price. Aromas of mocha, graphite and vanilla play nicely with core berry scents. Baked berry, vanilla and pastry flavors settle softly, with mellow tannins." Best Buy!
According to Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva de Familia is a special wine in the winery, pure Cabernet Sauvignon from Puente Alto, still their top-of-the-range for the variety. It’s a classical Cabernet from Maipo, with aromas of tobacco, cedar wood, blackberry and some herbal, fresh notes, a medium-bodied palate with grainy tannins, and good freshness as well as some crunchiness. Vibrant and alive, this good value in Cabernet shows good typicity and overdelivers for its price. With time and air, the feeling is of a very ripe harvest. 200,000 bottles filled. Drinking the 1962 vintage of this very same wine was a real pleasure, a kind of Mediterranean Bordeaux with aromas of cured meat, paprika, smoke, cedar wood, cigar ash and balsamic notes with a medium-bodied palate with fully resolved tannins with balance, elegance and complexity. Santa Carolina has the luxury of having old wines they can investigate to rescue some of their traditions. Very smart to look back to confirm where you have to go in the future. I take my hat off to them. Well done!"
According to Wine Spectator - "This brooding red offers muscular flavors of dried blackberry, hoisin sauce and roasted plum, with notes of dried mint and underbrush. Tobacco leaf and green herb accents appear on the finish." 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. 14.5% ABV.
