Los Vascos Grande Reserve 2010 by Domaines Barons de Rothchild Lafite

Grape Variety: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carménère,10% Syrah, 5 % Malbec

Very good wine with ripe black plum and raspberries over coffee, baking spice and with a hint sweet herbs. The fruit is medium plus in intensity and has very good concentration. The wine has great complexity and the medium grippy tannins balance the medium acidity giving a structure and a medium plus finish.  This wine will improve for 2-3 years and drink for 8-10.

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.
