After control of the Los Vascos winery was handed to the famous Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) of Bordeaux, they used their longstanding traditional methods of winemaking combined with their unbelievable resources to highlight the true sense of terroir in Chile; this wine shows the influence of Old World Bordeaux refinement and elegance while adhering to Chile’s unique terroir, which provides interesting flavors and complexity to the wine.

Deep red. Smoky aromas of cherry pit, plum, tobacco and rose. Supple and sweet on entry, then firmer in the middle, offering juicy redcurrant and cherry flavors and soft acidity. Finishes with gentle tannins and an echo of plum.

Full, rubbery and robust on the nose, with earthy berry aromas. The palate shows cassis, cherry and raspberry along with spiky, zesty acidity. Herbal, savory notes accent the finish, and overall this is a medium bodied Cab with lively fruit and freshness.

Forward, offering linzer torte and black cherry notes backed by a hint of fruitcake. Medium-weight, with a slightly firm finish. Drink now.
