Medalla Real Cabernet Sauvignon (Gran Reserva) 2009 wine review by (PB)
Palate--Plush tannins with integrated dark berry fruit and a solid, pronounced beam of black berry. Finishes with some cedar and more blackberry.
This "Santa Rita" Maipo Valley (Chile) Cab. seemed just "too green" on opening. But then I let it breathe a couple hours and holy cow; a seductive, complex and unique bouquet emerges to where I just want to sit and smell it.
I paid $16 for this recently and it is drinking fabulously. This will be enjoyable for several years to come so to raise a glass!
