Spiced gumdrop and rooty sweetness carry the massive nose to a big but balky palate of baked, roasted black fruits, cassis and tire rubber. There's sweetness, beef, marshmallow and burn along with tannic weight and grab. A lot of power; needs more touch. Believe it or not, Medalla Real Cabernet is now a 73,000-case product.
