    Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

    Item no. 93581

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Lustrous ruby red in the glass. Aromas of ripe red and black fruit aromas mingle with leather and spice, exquisitely balanced by wood notes evoking vanilla and toast. On the palate, supple tannins and a majestic structure conclude in a complex and persistent finish.

    Serving suggestions: Delicious with steaks, wild game, hearty stews, casseroles and ripe, semi-creamy cheeses

    "Bright ruby. Musky red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by underbrush, pungent herbs and dried rose. Impressively complex on the palate, offering sweet red- and blackcurrant, bitter cherry, mocha and licorice flavors. Dusty tannins carry through the long, spicy finish, adding structure and grip. This is balanced to age and could stand up to many Bordeaux at three times this price."
    -International Wine Cellar

    "In the 2005 vintage, Medalla Real again ranks as one of Chile's most elevated under-$20 wines... The nose veers between herbal and ripe, while the palate shows nothing but pure cassis, cherry and Maipo terroir. Its tight, structured and still ready to drink. Juicy more than beefy; a real treat."
    -Wine Enthusiast

    This is a very muscular wine with black fruit flavor and a hint of vanilla. Already delicious, it will improve with a year in the cellar.
