Top ten wines in the US Press19th June, 2014 by Richard Ross
Santa Rita Medalla Real Cabernet Sauvignon 2009, Chile
Dennis Sodomka of the Augusta Chronicle looks south for his pick of the week – and shares with us one of his “go-to” wines from Chile. Made with 5% Cabernet Franc to balance the Cabernet Sauvignon, he says this has “the intensity and depth of a much more expensive Cab”.
“It’s a rich, lush wine with a lot of fruit flavor, and smooth, sweet tannins. The wine is strong and powerful without overpowering you. It’s great as a sipper, but even better with food as the complex and concentrated flavor plays off the tastes of the food.”
