Escudo Rojo Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Valley, Chile
Escudo Rojo, launched in 1999 by Baroness Phillippine de Rothschild, is the result of an encounter between Chilean soil and Bordeaux expertise. The range now consists of seven wines and covers several valleys in the viticultural heaven that is Chile. This wine is produced from grapes collected in the Maipo valley and has spent eight months in old oak barrels, and possesses a rich fruit forward style.

The nose lends cassis, ripe red cherry, tobacco and liquorice. The palate is full bodied and intense. The tannins are fine and well balanced. There’s an explosion of black cherry, cassis and toasted spice on the finish. This wine drinks well after an hour in a decanter, and has the intensity to develop well in the bottle over the next few years.
