Rated 91 by Vinous Media
The 2019 Blend Escudo Rojo Gran Reserva is a Central Valley blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Carménère, 9% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, one-fourth new. Deep maroon in color, it presents a complex nose of black currant, blackberry and hints of eucalyptus and mint. Concentrated in the mouth; the good body and shapely, tacky tannins make for a lengthy, juicy Bordeaux-style finish.
Winery
The nose opens on an elegant combination of red and black fruit aromas, followed with airing by elegant spice and roasted coffee-bean notes. The palate has ripe red and black fruit flavors emerge on the attack, followed on the midpalate by powerful black fruit mingled with delicate spice and roasted coffee-bean notes. The fruit flavors found on the attack return, underpinned by beautifully refined tannins which give length and elegance to the finish.

Country: Chile

Whilst being widely regarded as definitively 'New World' as a wine producing country, Chile has actually been cultivating grapevines for wine production for over five hundred years. The Iberian conquistadors first introduced vines to Chile with which to make sacramental wines, and although these were considerably different in everything from flavor, aroma and character to the wines we associate with Chile today, the country has a long and interesting heritage when it comes to this drink. Chilean wine production as we know it first arose in the country in the mid to late 19th century, when wealthy landowners and industrialists first began planting vineyards as a way of adopting some European class and style. They quickly discovered that the hot climate, sloping mountainsides and oceanic winds provided a perfect terroir for quality wines, and many of these original estates remain today in all their grandeur and beauty, still producing the wines which made the country famous.
