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". The nose is so complex with notes of ripe pineapple, peach, mango, & toasty vanilla. The palate is dry exhibiting a lovely texture along with a great acidity. The oak characters manifest themselves distinctly on the palate showcasing wonderfully balanced fruit flavors. This is a beautiful wine with good aging potential.
Cherry-red with delicate ruby-red highlights.
A very intense, fruity wine with red fruit aromas such as cherry, cranberry, sage and earthy forest floor mingled with smooth nuances of spices and jam, combined with a hint of toasted almonds imparted by barrel ageing.
Starts out excellent and very refreshing on the palate. Good volume and nice unctuous texture mid-palate. The structure reveals very smooth and elegant tannins. The aromatic complexity and red fruit notes return on the long finish, accompanied by good acidity.
