Wine tasting notes

Aspect: A deep, glittering purple. Nose: The complex, very intense and fruit-forward nose offers aromas of ripe plum, violet and liquorice, followed by white pepper spice mingled with gentle touches of coffee and vanilla from time spent in oak. Palate: This succulent wine has a very good, fresh and generous attack, with good substance and balanced acidity on powerful but refined and elegant tannins which underpin harmonious fruit, violet and liquorice flavours on the mid-palate. The long and elegant finish perfectly expresses the sheer style of Maipo Valley Syrah.

Food matching

Provence-style rib of beef, rabbit fricassee with thyme, spicy aubergine caviar, chocolate cake.

Expert reviews

James Suckling (2018) - 94 pts

This shows deep fruit on the nose and palate with black fruit, black pepper and dried meat. It rolls on and on with a creamy, polished-tannin finish. Reserva this year. Drink or hold.


Decanter (2018) - 90 pts

Part of Escudo Rojo's well made single-varietal range from Chile. Smooth black fruit aromas with black spices and a savoury edge. Well-defined, fresh black berry fruit on the palate, with meaty notes of chorizo and smoked sausage, plus supple tannins. Finishes fresh, with echoes of blackberries and spice.
