Why We Love This Wine

Founded in 1930, Baron Philippe de Rothschild is based in Bordeaux. In addition to their Medoc vineyards, they also count many plots in California & Chile (where Escudo Rojo originates) where they combine the best of traditional personal experience and the best of advanced scientific wine making practices to transform the gifts of nature into works of art. Escudo Rojo is the Spanish translation of the German "Rote Schild" which means "Red Shield". Displaying a dense purple robe, the nose of this wine is replete with violet florals, blackberry, black cherry, & spice hints. On the palate, this wine is soft, rich, & powerful with flavors of red & black berry fruit, black pepper, & mocha buttressed by soft tannins. This Chilean red boasts a silky texture leading to a long & lingering finish. enjoy this wine with Vegetable Curry, Chicken with Paprika, & an Escalope (Boneless Fillet) of Veal.

Winemaker / Tasting Notes

The nose opens up with ripe blackberry fruit aromas and secondary notes of roasted coffee beans and black pepper with further airing. The mid-palate combines power & heft with a long, lingering finish laced with an intense array of black fruit, spice, & roasted coffee bean flavors.
