Escudo Rojo Origine 2019
|Region||Chile, Maipo Valley|
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Escudo Rojo Origine comes from Buin, Maipo, and is a mixture of grapes from several vineyard parcels harvested at different times, which then spent 12 months in French oak barrels, one-third new. Red with a violet shimmer. The aromas are black currant and blackberry plus hints of balsam and pencil box notes. In the mouth, it's juicy with active, grippy tannins, well-judged freshness and a lingering finish.
A delicate nose shows enticing aromas of cherry, red plum and spices. Fruit and dark chocolate flavors are smoothly blended with subtle toasted oak notes. It's silky and rounded with a pleasant finish. Red-fruit flavors linger in the aftertaste.
Elegant, with good cut to the ripe berry, roasted plum and dark cherry flavors that are matched to plenty of dark chocolate and mocha notes. Ends with herbal accents on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 3,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
