Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Medalla Real Reserva Especial Single Estate 2008 750ml

Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Medalla Real Reserva Especial Single Estate

91 Points Wine Enthusiast: 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. Grabby, tight and ageable through at least 2013. The real deal in affordable Chilean higher-end CS; offers a little of everything, from spice to herbs to olive to fine fruit.

The grapes for our Medalla Real wines are exclusively selected and hand-picked at the ideal stage of ripeness from our best and oldest vineyards. The result is a true enological masterpiece: complex and concentrated, elegant and classic in style.

100% of the grapes come from our 15-year-old, low-yield Alto Jahuel vineyard trellised to vertical shoot position. Shoot removal in early spring and leaf pulling after flowering are normal vineyard management techniques used to obtain good tannin ripening and minimize the pyrazine character of the grapes at harvest. The Cabernet Sauvignon was picked in the second half of April; the Cabernet Franc was harvested earlier in the season.

Pepper Steak, deer, game birds, strong cheeses, strongly spiced red meats, goose, etc.

Outstanding QPR, great nose of dark cherry, cassis, vanilla and spice. Same flavors on the palate with a medium to strong grippy finish. Can't beat it for the money, I have two cases to enjoy down the road.
