A fine blended red wine, Escudo Rojo combines the richness of Chile's vineyards with the technical skill of Baron Philippe De Rothschild. S.A. It is made from four traditional grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Planted on rigorously selected, low-yield parcels of the vineyard. The grapes are hand-picked, and each variety is vinified separately in our Bodega. The wine is then blended and matured for about 12 months in French oak. A wine of intense aromatic complexity, Escudo Rojo has a well-balanced structure and a long lingering finish, with plenty of ageing potential, it can be enjoyed for several years.
Youthful appearance. Dirt, rubber, earth, and spice box aromas give way to blue and purple fruit, prunes, spicy licorice, and peppermint flavors. The flavors envelop the palate with a thick coat of black fruit, the plum midpalate quickly evolving into prunes before segueing into an espresso finish and a cigar box persistence. This is full throttle, with nice acidity and a tannic presence.
