97pts James Suckling

Such demure depth and focus on the nose, showing high-grade cedar wood with brooding yet fresh blackberries, cassis and cigar, as well as hints of dark olives and red chili pepper. Beautiful cabernet character here. This is a very structured and full-bodied red, imbedded with lots of vertical, fine-grained tannins now, which will take some time to soften. The volume on the palate is quite impressive. 81% cabernet sauvignon, 5% cabernet franc, 5% syrah, 5% petit verdot and 4% carmenere. Sustainable. Drink from 2026.

The 2020 Baron Philippe de Rothschild Escudo Rojo is a full red wine with excellent liveliness and length. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of blackberries, boysenberries, and a suggestion of earthiness. Pair it with grilled, rosemary-accented lamb chops.

Winemaker Notes

Born from the exceptional Maipo Valley terroir, this fine wine is a blend of five grape varieties in which Cabernet Sauvignon predominates. It stands out for its complex fruit and spice aromas and flavors, its elegant, patrician tannins and the element of magic linked to its history.

Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Syrah, 4% Carmenere

About the Winery

Escudo Rojo is an iconic Chilean brand created by Baron Philippe de Rothschild to produce the best wines in each category and market them worldwide. The wines strike a harmonious balance between freshness, fruit, oak, fullness on the palate and ageing potential. In addition to the flagship blended wine, the Escudo Rojo range includes five varietal wines: Carmenere, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. All the wines in the range express a distinctive character, reflecting the expression of its terroir.

Escudo Rojo is the Spanish translation of the German “Rote Schild” meaning Red Shield. In 1999, the encounter between Chilean soil and Bordeaux expertise gave rise to Escudo Rojo, a branded wine worthy of the Baron Philippe de Rothschild name, synonymous with the high standards of a great winemaking tradition. Vines were first introduced into Chile in the 16th century by the Spanish Conquistadors and their religious orders who needed wine to celebrate mass. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay vines were imported from France in the 19th century in order to make finer wines.
