The Medalla Real line now includes Carmenère. And this first effort is excellent. It has licorice, mint and ripe, balanced black fruit in all places, including the nose, mouth and finish. Around the edges, accents of cola, chocolate, olive and leather only add to its authenticity. Drink now into 2011.
