Santa Rita 'Medalla Real' Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
A full bodied wine. Detected hints of blackberry and oak. A very nice wine.
External Reviews for Santa Rita 'Medalla Real' Cabernet Sauvignon
Inky ruby. Dark berry and cherry-cola aromas are complemented by licorice and a hint of bonfire. Juicy cassis and cherry flavors are firmed by dusty tannins, which gain strength with air. There's plenty of fruit here but I'd have liked more give. The finish is firm and focused, leaving bitter cherry and tobacco notes behind.
Sports a lot of vanilla toast, but has a good core of raspberry and blackberry fruit behind it, giving way to more vanilla and licorice hints on the finish. Drink now. 73,300 cases made. -JM ** SOLD OUT **
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.
90 Points - Wine Enthusiats Winemaker's Notes: Ripe red and black fruit aromas mingle with leather and spice, exquisitely balanced by wood notes evoking vanilla and toast.
Powerful, with lots of smoke, cedar, loam, black currant and blackberry fruit flavors. Thick, burly tannins will need to resolve a bit, but this is a fine display of Maipo Cabernet. Drink now through 2007.
