Food Pairings for Santa Rita Cabernet Medalla
Had at noir with John and christine. Paid 40 bucks.
tasty! went very well with garlic-sweet potato, turmeric-rice & spinach dinner. (mine is 2009) :)
Great every day wine. Peppery dry
outstanding depth. predominance of blackberries, not overoaked. I think this is an outstanding effort from Santa rita of Chile. Should cellar well.
I really enjoyed this wine and plan to add several more bottles to my rack. Soft and easy to drink.
External Reviews for Santa Rita Cabernet Medalla
If you donrsquo;t mind a touch of herbal pickle and rhubarb on both the bouquet and palate, this this inexpensive Carmenegrave;re will do the job. It offers modest red plum and herbal flavors with a bit of tartness and spice. Has good texture and overall balance.
Definitely a Carmenegrave;re, which you can tell from the olive and herb nose and the plump, jammy palate that contains red plum, olive and chocolate flavors. Shows juicy acidity. Nothing wrong with this wine, just basic.
On the ripe side of carmenegrave;re, this delivers plenty of chocolate and caramelized cherry flavors. A good value and an excellent partner for barbecue.
The ruby-colored 2000 Carmenegrave;re 120 is a delightful value. Lively, spicy red cherries can be found in its aromas and flavors. This wine has copious fruit, a soft personality, and a hint of bitterness in the finish that will be completely masked if it is consumed with food.
A profound Cabernet from Santa Rita's home vineyard in Alto Jahuel. The hue is dark and opaque, while the nose is deep and earthy, but also intensely fruity. Shows fine structure and a lot of black cherry and cassis. Grabby, tight and ageable through at least 2013. The real deal in affordable Chilean higher-end CS; offers a little of everything, from spice to herbs to olive to fine fruit.
Good clean, direct apple and pear notes are backed by a modestly buttery edge. Fresh finish. Drink now.
Maipo Valley, where Chile's first vinifera vines were planted, is now the epicenter of Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. The Viña Santa Rita 2006 is textbook Maipo Cab, a distinctive wine with loam, black currant and sage and plenty of grip. Santa Rita's vineyards are situated in a cool pocket of land in an otherwise warm region, set between the Pacific and the Andes at an altitude of 2,100 feet. Fifteen thousand cases of the 40,000 produced reached the U.S. market. Winemaker Andres Ilbaca blended 5 percent Cabernet Franc and aged the wine for about a year in a mix of new and older French oak.
Deep ruby-red in color, with a bouquet of black fruits such as black currants, blueberries, and blackberries with dried figs, cigar box, and spice notes. The concentrated palate offers well-rounded ripe tannins that create the prominent backbone that leads the wine on to a long, lingering finish.
