Product Ratings

James Suckling 92pt

Aging

The wine is matured in one-year-old oak barrels for six to eight months before bottling. 30% new oak and 70% 1-2 year old oak barrels.

Tasting notes

The nose opens on ripe black berry fruit aromas, joined on airing by notes of roasted coffee beans and black pepper. From a highly expressive attack on the black fruit found on the nose, the peppery notes that emerged with airing return on a midpalate which combines power with heft. The finish lingers on an intense array of black fruit, spice and roasted coffee bean flavors.

Vinification

The grapes are hand-picked then brought to the Baron Philippe de Rothschild Maipo Chile bodega, in the heart of the Maipo Valley. Combining wood and steel in a distinctive architectural style, the bodega has state-of-the-art equipment that also respects the great winemaking traditions. Escudo Rojo Carmenere is vinified in the Bordeaux manner, favoring extraction of the fruit and a supple, well-balanced tannic structure.
