Almaviva 2008 by Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Concha y Toro

Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon: 66%, Carménère: 26%, Cabernet Franc: 8%

Outstanding wine with dark plums, cassis, blueberries, a herbal note, sweet baking spice and a mineral note. The fruit intensity is high and very concentrated. The tannins are high and mature with the medium plus alcohol this structure is very balanced and will age very well. The finish is long, the wine has great complexity that will improve with age. This will drink well in 15 years or more.

Grape Variety: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 10% Carmenere, 5% Petit Verdot.

Outstanding wine with excellent fruit intensity and concentration. The dark red fruit and mixed spices are balanced by the 14% alc and ripe full tannins to give great structure and bring balance. This wine has good complexity which will increase with age. The wine has great potential and will age for 5-7 years and drink well for another 10. This wine has a very long finish.

Escudo Rojo 2007 by Baron Philippe de Rothschild

Grape Variety: Red Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carmenere and Cabernet Franc

Good minus wine with mixed fruit, touch of oak and prominent tannins. The acid is Med- and acl is 14% both give some structure. The fruit intensity is forward and disrupts the balance leading to a Med- finish. Drink now.
