Added Mar 22, 2010 at 6:58pmAs much as I enjoy the Santa Rita Medalla Real I've drunk from later vintages, this wine was a bit disappointing. An interesting nose of fennel, paprika and lavender promised more, but the fruit dosn't deliver and most of what is left is a mouthful of tannins. My first inclination was to give this wine a 2.5 glasses rating but it improved some with air.

Added Mar 20, 2010 at 11:42amExcellent wine at twice the cost. Blackberry and prunes up front, balanced with mineral notes I can't quite pin to a particular flavor; the right amount of acidity to make it refreshing and plenty of tannins and spice--not too much, though--to finish a very satisfying mouthfull of wine.

Added Mar 16, 2010 at 6:35pmMoss, delicate garden vegetables and melon on the front end; light but present tannins on the back. A good wine to serve with oven roasted meats like an eye of round or pork loin.

Added Mar 15, 2010 at 8:32amA very satisfying blend, with a soft base of fruit to introduce some spice, finished with an assertive tannic structure. If you like a good Chianti, you'll probably enjoy this as well.

Added Mar 11, 2010 at 5:46pmAn interesting and pleasant balance of fruit, minerals, tannin and acidity; it drives right down the fairway without letting any one characteristic of the four varietals present define this tasty blend. For the price it should be good, and it is.

Added Feb 14, 2010 at 11:55amA good wine and a great value; a bit low on acidity for my taste but fine tannins, bold drark fruit and a spicy finish make this an enjoyable wine. I recommend it.

Toro Do Termanthia 2007Compare and Buy
Average Price: $59.99
Added Feb 12, 2010 at 7:06pmA terrific wine with many powerful flavors pushing around in the mouth, dominated by charcoal and tannins. Really interesting. I'd serve with seasoned meat. Well worth a try.

Added Feb 6, 2010 at 9:53amGreat wine, tannic, benefits from decanting and air exposure. Should age nicely.
