Punching above its price point, this 92 point, wonderfully aged Cab is back. The 2012 Santa Rita Medalla Real Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile is over 45% off for the next day!
We've got a pretty cool one today with a much more complex and savory Cab than you typically find at this price point. (This is definitely not the big often overly-oaked style you find so common in Washington or California.) And as you know if you got in on this deal the last time we offered it, this is a wine that has benefited from a good amount of age in the bottle and is really drinking wonderfully right now.
The 2012 vintage we are offering here today received 91 points from James Suckling and 92 points from Falstaff. It originally had an SRP of $20 with not much remaining in the wild at this point.
Today's INSIDER DEAL gets you 6 bottles of the 2012 Santa Rita Medalla Real Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon for $71.99, or just $12 a bottle, plus $5 for shipping!

From the bottle:
The Medalla Real collection represents the tremendous diversity and wealth of Chile's terroirs, influenced by the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains. Santa Rita's winemakers and viticulturists have carefully chosen the best sectors of the country's most distinct wine regions in order to express the wide range of terroirs and capture the full potential and unique character of each variety that distinguishes the Medalla Real wines.
Our Medalla Real Cabernet Sauvignon from the Maipo Valley, one of the world's finest wine regions, has a deep and bright ruby-red color. The concentrated body is rich in ripe almost sweet tannins. Its fragrant aroma evokes black currant and tar, with notes of oak from 14 months of barrel-aging.
The 2012 Santa Rita Medalla Real Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a pleasing aroma of ripe fruit, a little bit of a green pepper note (not uncommon for Chile) and some sweet spice and leather.
This wine has aged wonderfully and is drinking quite nice right now. Full of savory balsamic notes and lots of deep fruit flavors this medium to full-bodied Cab also features smooth, fine tannins and excellent touches of spice and chocolate plus a little bit of an earthy, vegetal note underneath. Yummy yum! It ends dry, long and quite savory.
We drank this side by side with a big, young and expensive Washington Cab that spent a lot of time in French oak and this was clearly the more complex wine. Don't miss this rare chance to pick up a wine with some significant age on it for just $12!
