The Escudo Rojo Gran Reserva is a fine blend of traditional grape varieties grown in our own vineyard and in rigorously selected parcels by our partners. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc grapes are selected by our technical team and vinified in the Baron Philippe de Rothschild Maipo Chile bodega. Year after year, that subtle combination yields a round, complex and concentrated wine with attractively expressive fruit.
Half the vintage is matured in one-year-old oak barrels for 12 months. 25% new oak and 75% in 1-2 year old oak barrels.
The nose opens on an elegant combination of red and black fruit aromas, followed with airing by elegant spice and roasted coffee-bean notes. The palate has ripe red and black fruit flavors emerge on the attack, followed on the midpalate by powerful black fruit mingled with delicate spice and roasted coffee-bean notes. The fruit flavors found on the attack return, underpinned by beautifully refined tannins which give length and elegance to the finish.
Colour: Bright and deep ruby red.
Nose: The nose opens on black cherry and blackcurrant aromas, developing blackberry and spice notes mingles with touches of liquorice and roast coffee.
Palate: The attach is powerful and succulent. The creamy mid-palate gradually reveals raspberry and blackberry flavours, going on to express a perfect association of ripe black fruit and spicy, toasted notes. The finish reveals all the character of the Chilean terroir, perfectly combining Cabernet elegance with roundness and powerful flavours of Syrah and Carmenère.
