2004 Santa Rita "Medalla Real" Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1033735

91 points in Wine Spectator: "Densely packed, with fig, currant and blackberry flavors, all wrapped up with coffee, bitersweet cocoa powder and loam notes. Long, ripe, muscular finish lets the notes of dark fruit, earth and grilled sage linger. Drink now through 2011." (Oct. 31, 2007) Recently, here at K&L, we have had a great run of Chilean Cabernets come through the store and this wine might just be on the top of that list as far as quality for value is concerned. The Santa Rita "Medalla Real" Cabernet Sauvignon is a solid, powerful Cab full of typical varietal flavors such as dusty currant and pastis. What isn't typical about this wine is the amount of stuffing packed into a wine for well under $20. The nose begins to suck you in with its tanbark and sweet black tea but just when you think this wine is going to lean towards the rustic side it explodes with lush tones. Full of baking cocoa, anise seed, cassis and spiced blackberry jam this is perfectly ripe but is far from jammy. Buffered by some framing tannin and the lift of some fresh, minty acidity this has true balance rarely seen in Cabernets in this price point. (Bryan Brick, K&L)
