James Suckling 93pt

Tasting notes

The nose opens on an array of refined ripe black fruit aromas, joined on airing by light toasted hazelnut notes. The palate has ripe black fruit notes found on the nose return on the rich and ample attack, while attractive spice and toast flavors bring remarkable complexity and intensity to the midpalate, underpinned by powerful tannins typical of Cabernet Sauvignon. The black fruit flavors return on the long and fresh finish.

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.

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