Brand Escudo Rojo
Alcohol/vol 14%
Deep ruby-red with purple highlights. The nose is intense and elegant, revealing powerful fruity notes, mainly blackcurrant and black cherry, developing hints of Asian spices and black pepper mingled with subtle nuances of roasted almonds and toffee due to barrel ageing. This wine starts out powerful and complex. Remarkably rich and well-structured, the palate is both full-bodied and very elegant, underpinned by well-balanced freshness. The tannins are very ripe, fine, elegant and silky. Fruity flavors come to the fore, particularly notes of cherry and wild blueberry. The finish is concentrated and well-balanced, with long-lasting flavors of black berries and black pepper, followed by retronasal notes of roasted almonds and mocha. A long-lasting finish with very elegant flavors revealing all the richness of Cabernet Sauvignon grown on an outstanding terroir in the Maipo Valley.

The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Escudo Rojo Origine Cabernet, from Isla de Maipo, spent 14 months in 25% new barrels. Garnet red in hue. The nose presents notes of ripe sour cherry and hints of balsam and black currant. Sugary in the mouth with reactive tannins and a medium volume, it's slightly taut and tacky on the gums. The year gives it a lick of alcohol.

The nose shows a classical Maipo Valley Cabernet. It's well-crafted, with nuances of oak and ripe fruit that are nicely balanced by elegant texture and excellent acidity. Chocolate is followed by plum flavors in the earthy finish.

This red plays to the savory side, though subtly, with eucalyptus and dried mint nuances to a berry and cassis core, which stretches out nicely midpalate around fresh acidity. Concludes with slightly chewy tannins. Drink now. 3,867 cases made, 500 cases imported.
