Santa Carolina Reserva de Familia Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Our Reserva de Familia Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and elegant. This full-bodied wine features a deep red-ruby color, spicy and fruity aromas, and intense flavors of plum and jam. On the palate, the round, velvety tannins provide a smooth texture and well-integrated oak character. Its long and elegant finish is rich with cinnamon and pepper notes as the wine is already developing a pleasant bottle bouquet.

Wine EnthusiastElegance mixed with bold fruit is what this overachieving Cabernet is about. Aromas of blackberry, dried black plum, spice and cocoa suggest high quality. A focused palate and textural grip holds cherry and cassis flavors that are ripe and backed by notes of chocolate and coffee. Drink through 2022.
Wine AdvocateI prefer the younger 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva de Familia compared to the 2015. This is balsamic and juicy, with nice balance, perfect ripeness and good freshness. Very tasty, representing the variety, place and vintage.
