    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine has a deep and intense ruby red color. Santa Rita Medalla Real Carmenere has a complex bouquet that combines fresh black fruits and spicy notes with elegantly defined oak to heighten the wine's chocolate and vanilla characteristics. A big and flavorful wine that is concentrated and and persistent with elegant tannins.

    Delicious with steak, barbecue, venison, game birds, and ripe blue cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The herbal notes so characteristic of carmenère appear on the palate, harmoniously melding with notes of cherries, floral details and toasty scents of oak. This is a deeply flavored carmenère with great softness.

    A true mess of a wine. Color looks like earth, and tastes like it too. Unlike other Carmeneres, this one (in my opinion) lacks the flavorful bouquet, the fruitful taste, or a smooth finish. For the price, $20+, there are better options, and definitely better Carmeneres out there. This one is barely meeting the cooking wine category in my book.
