Los Vascos is a special place. It’s the estate that Barons Eric de Rothschild selected for the first ever French viticultural investment in South America back in the 1980′– not just by the family behind Lafite, but by anyone.
The Rothschild’s investment in Chile has been immense with phenomenal support from the parent company. They approach the portfolio as a team. So while Winemaker Marcelo Gallardo – typically makes bottles of wines for twenty bucks a bottle, he gets to travel to all the other wineries and leverage the same support team as the guys who make wine for $1250/btl.
This is a great bottle of wine that is very food friendly, fruit forward and full-bodied. It’s meant to be enjoyed in its youth. Hard to beat the value here!

Rich, spicy aromas with a core of red plums, as well as a gently minty edge. The palate has round, succulent fruit flavors with a supple, fresh and juicy finish. Like the acidity here. Drink or hold.
