This superb wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Carménère, three Bordeaux grape varieties that have been carefully grown by Santa Rita for more than 80 years. This wine benefits from the best of both; Old and New World combining the elegance of traditional grape varieties with New World techniques.

Aromas of tobacco, vanilla and licorice are nicely intermixed with black fruit scents. The palate on this blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère is hard driving and focused. Flavors of plum, currant and spice hold steady across a tannic, mildly abrasive finish. Drink through 2020.

Rich and full of verve, this offers concentrated red plum, dark currant and boysenberry flavors on a sleek frame. Hints of cream and plenty of spice on the lush, chocolate-infused finish. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases made.

The cedary and slightly oaky 2011 Triple C is a blend of 65% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carménère from Maipo; it is a blend that varies slightly with the vintage. There are aromas of wild berries and spices, in a quite subtle way, getting mintier with time in the glass. The palate shows some grainy tannins and moderate acidity. It calls for food. 37,300 bottles produced.
