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.
Wine Maker Notes
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.
