Baron Philippe de Rothschild Escudo Rojo 2015.  


Escudo Rojo is a fine blend of traditional grape varieties. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Syrah and Cabernet Franc grapes are selected and vinified in the Baron Philippe de Rothschild Maipo Chile bodega. Year after year, the subtle combination yields a round, complex and concentrated wine with attractively expressive fruit.

The attack is powerful and complex. Supported by beautifully mature tannins, the rich and smooth mid-palate gradually reveals raspberry, blackcurrant and blackberry flavors. It goes on to express a perfect marriage of ripe black fruit, fresh black pepper and spicy notes.

The powerful and stylish finish reveals all the character of the Chilean terroir, combining the elegance of Cabernet with the roundness and powerful flavor of Syrah and Carmenere.

Aspect: Dark red with a crimson tint. 
Nose: The highly complex nose opens on an elegant combination of ripe red and black fruit aromas together with delicate toasted hazelnut notes. 
Palate: From an attack on expressive, ripe red fruit notes such as cherry and raspberry, the packed and rich mid-palate reveals an array of red and black fruit flavours accompanied by subtle coffee notes. Toasted hazelnut notes make an attractive return, bringing length and balance to a finish underpinned by refined tannins.
