VIÑA SANTA RITA Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley Medalla Real Special Reserve 2002

A cascade of tropical fruit notes and a vibrant structure make this '03 Riesling very tasty. Slim in stature, yet intense in flavor, it lingers nicely, with an apple aftertaste. Drink now through 2010. 1,000 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
