Winemaker Notes

Deep and intense ruby red. 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 persistent with elegant tannins.

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

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 with enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years at which point it could well merit an outstanding rating. As is, it is an outstanding value.

WS 88
Wine Spectator

Sleek and racy, with plenty of juicy acidity behind the plush raspberry, dark currant and coffee flavors. Shows white pepper accents midpalate, lingering on the slate-filled finish. Drink now through 2018.
