750ML    
Sku: 010051

Tasting notes
Beautifulruby red colour. The nose opens with intense notes of fresh red fruit, such as cherries and strawberries, lightly underscored with aromas of thyme, bay and mint. Superb volume on the palate, with soft yet well-defined tannins. A wine with a fine balance of fruit.

2012. This is a juicy and dense wine yet it remains agile and pretty with chocolate, berry and spice character. Hints of mint too. Medium to full body, delicious fruit and a long and intense finish. 75% cabernet sauvignon, 10% carmenere, 10% syrah, and 5% malbec. The cabernet shows beauty.


Wine maker notes
2012. Deep ruby red robe. Expressive nose with fruity aromas reminiscent of plums, blueberries and ripe blackberries that blend superbly with notes of bitter chocolate, cocoa, mocha, coffee, toasted sesame, cassis liqueur, tobacco, and black pepper.Sober and elegant mouthfeel with gentle and refined yet persistent and tasty tannins that offer a pleasing sensation filled with characteristics of the terroir.

Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenere, 10% Syrah, 5% Malbec

DOMAINES BARONS DE ROTHSCHILD-LAFITE took over the Los Vascos estate (Los Vascos meaning The Basques, in honour of its Basque origins) in 1988. Los Vascos is one of Chiles oldest wine estates. Yes, on the label is the Rothschild logo, the five arrows symbolizing the five sons of original patriarch Mayer Rothschild.

The largest vineyard in the central Colchagua valley, at the foot of Mount Cañeten. The 640 hectares under vine are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) Carménère (5%), Syrah (4%), Malbec (1%) and Chardonnay (5%). Given that there was major replanting at the beginning of the 1990s, the vineyard is divided between a group of 15-year old plots and another group of 40 to 50-year old plots. The oldest grapevines are 70 years old.
