Product Ratings

James Suckling 93pt

Aging

The wine is matured in one-year-old oak barrels for six to eight months before bottling. 10% new oak and 90% 1-2 year old oak barrels.

Tasting notes

The nose opens on subtle notes of black fruit such as blackberry and blackcurrant, followed on airing by delicate touches of oak and black pepper. The round and full attack displays the expressive black fruit notes found on the nose. The tannic structure typical of Syrah lends attractive body and heft to the mid-palate, sustained by elegant notes of black and grey pepper, followed by a beautifully long finish distinguished by a remarkable return of fruit flavors and refined toasted notes.

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 Syrah is vinified in the Bordeaux manner, favoring extraction of the fruit and a supple, well-balanced tannic structure.
