Escudo Rojo Syrah, Maipo Valley, Chile
Escudo Rojo, launched in 1999 by Baroness Philippine 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 spends eight months in old oak.

This wine has wonderful intensity, sweet concentrated black cherry, menthol and black pepper. Full bodied and rich. The tannins are beautifully extracted and despite being quite grippy there is an avalanche of juicy black fruit that holds the tannin very well. The power and intensity of this wine dictates that it is best after an hour in a decanter and served with a hearty dish.
