Santa Rita Special Reserve Medalla Real Single Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007, Maipo Valley, Chile - $20

This wine was a gift from BE. It retails online for $20/bottle and was rated 88 by Wine Enthusiast. It's a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc

Aroma - black fruit, dark chocolate, a little hot (14.1% alcohol)
Taste - black fruit, dark chocolate, strong tannins, dark cocoa finish

I like this wine, and it went well with pasta and tomato sauce, and salad with balsamic vinaigrette.
