Santa Rita 120 Carmenere 2011
External Reviews for Santa Rita 120 Carmenere
Medalla Real Carmenere 2008 - 89 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2009 Carmenere Medalla Real is nicely framed by its oak. Aromas of pain grille, graphite, dark chocolate, plum, and blackberry are followed by a medium- to full-bodied, layered, full-flavored wine
Medalla Real Carmenere 2008 - Boca Delray Life/ Bordeaux-like but very tropical, masculine with an exceptional smoothness; complex and rewarding.
Medalla Real Carmenere 2007 - 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ The Medalla Real line now includes Carmenere. And this first effort is excellent. It has licorice, mint and ripe, balanced black fruit in all places, including the nose, mouth and finish. Around the edges, accents of cola, chocolate, olive and leather only add to its authenticity.
Medalla Real Carmenere 2008 - 90 Points, International Wine Cellar/ Opaque ruby. Pungent bouquet of dark berry and cherry preserves, candied licorice and incense. Lush, creamy dark fruit flavors become spicier with air. The finish is expansive, sweet and impressively persistent, leaving spice and floral notes behind. Plenty seductive now but this has the concentration to age.
Medalla Real Carmenere 2008 - 90 Points, Wine & Spirits/ The herbal notes so characteristic of carmenere appear on the palate, harmoniously melding with notes of cherries, floral details and toasty scents of oak. This is a deeply flavored carmenere with great softness.
Medalla Real Carmenere 2007 - 90 Points, Wine Spectator/ Wine Spectator's Great Buys: "Very polished, delivering a hefty beam of plum and violet."
Medalla Real Carmenere 2007 - Wine Advocate/ The purple-colored 2007 Carmenere Medalla Real reveals scents of spice box, violets, and blueberry. It delivers more depth than the Reserva bottling and a longer finish.
