Santa Rita 120 Reserva Especial Red Blend, Valle Central Chile, 2018
According to legend, 120 patriots, exhausted after a long, hard battle during the fight of Chile's independence, reached the lands belonging to Santa Rita. On that fateful night in 1814, these forces of liberty found reforge in the estate cellars. Today, within these same cellars, our award-winning 120 wines are crafted to honor their heroic character. Our 120 Hero's Salute Red blend, a selected blend of three grape varieties, is deep ruby and red with violet homes originating from the Carmenere grape. Rich red and black fruit aromas and beautifully balanced with wood notes given by the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied with the tannins and a long finish. Alc. 13% by vol. 26 Wine of Chile.
