Matt’s review: Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s Escudo Rojo Reserva is an impressive value-priced Cabernet Sauvignon from this storied Chilean winery. Dark plum, blackberry, brandied cherries, baking spices, pepper, and menthol on the hose and palate. Medium-full bodied, it’s dry with dark fruits and savoury flavours persisting on the refreshing finish. Enjoy with braised dishes, BBQ fare, or aged cheddar. Tasted October 2021. 89 points.
