Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This cabernet has a deep, ruby red color with fine brilliance. Its fragrant aroma evokes black currant, tar and wood notes originating from the barrels is was aged in. The taste has a concentrated body, rich in ripe almost sweet tannins.

Serve with steaks, game, hearty stews, casseroles and ripe, semi-creamy cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Spiced gumdrop and rooty sweetness carry the massive nose to a big but balky palate of baked, roasted black fruits, cassis and tire rubber. There’s sweetness, beef, marshmallow and burn along with tannic weight and grab. A lot of power; needs more touch."

Great fruit, great color (deep purple), great nose (leather, tobacco, a hint of motor oil...a trait I've noticed in reds from Chile and Argentina that's actually quite good), nice finish with balanced tannins and bit of dustiness. Great wine for the price, but make sure it's the Medalla Real, the others just aren't as good.

Learn About Chile

The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
