Escudo Rojo ‘Baron Philippe de Rothschild’ 2013

Blended Red from Chile
Review Date : 02-Nov-2016
Very dark, deep, black-red colour, a little lighter on the rim with garnet hues. The nose is finely concentrated and proportioned with harmoniously interwoven and soft aromas of ripe blackcurrants and cassis liqueur melded with blackberry and black plum notes, and a layering of piquant dark herbs. The aromatics are restrained and stylish in expression. Medium-full bodied, the palate is soft, luscious and plush with balanced and harmonious flavours of black-berried fruits, currants and plums with soft nuances of spice and herbs. The mouthfeel is smooth in texture with fine-grained tannins and integrated acidity. The wine flows smoothly to a soft, fine-textured, lingering finish with subtle berry fruit notes. This is a harmonious and balanced Bordeaux-varietal blend with blackberry, blackcurrant and plummy fruit with a smooth and fine tannin structure. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 6-8 years. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Syrah and Cabernet Franc from the Vallee Central, hand-picked an fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged one year in 1 y.o. oak barrels. 18.0+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $22.45
