2015 Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon Grande Reserve, Colchagua
Lovely deep colour. Aromas of fresh, ripe raspberries, cherries, and plums on the nose, along with notes of cocoa, peppermint, black olive, white pepper and prune. On the palate, an appealingly ripe, supple style is backed by ripe, smooth tannins. Delicious
James Suckling - 92 points: More fruit and intensity than the 2014. Medium to full body, chocolate, hazelnut and berry character. Delicious complexity and fruit.
Domaines Barons de Rothschild-Lafite took over the Los Vascos estate (Los Vascos meaning The Basques, in honour of its Basque origins) in 1988. They chose Los Vascos, because of its location near the ocean and its exceptional soil. Along with ideal weather conditions, Los Vascos benefits from intense exposure to the sun, adequate water sources, semi-arid soils and little risk of frost. At an average of 130m above sea level and at just 40 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean, the microclimate of Viña Los Vascos has everything to produce fine wines.
