Escudo Rojo, Baron Philippe de Rothschild, 2017
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.
Escudo Rojo is the Hispanic translation of the German "Rote Schild", emblem of the family.
