The color is a lustrous ruby red. On the nose you'll find ripe red and black fruit aromas mingle with leather and spice, exquisitely balanced by wood notes evoking vanilla and toast. On the palate are supple tannins and a majestic structure conclude in a complex and persistent finish.
Delicious with steaks, wild game, hearty stews, casseroles and ripe, semi-creamy cheeses.
"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. The real deal in affordable Chilean higher-end CS; offers a little of everything, from spice to herbs to olive to fine fruit.

"Very solid for the vintage, with crushed plum, fig and black current fruit woven with maduro tobacco and bittersweet cocoa. There’s a loam edge on the finish, but this stays solidly fleshy through the end."
Great... enuff said
Consistently great Cabernet, the Medalla Real is definitely a step above the regular Santa Rita Cab.
