Baron Philippe de Rothschild Carmenère Colchagua Valley Escudo Rojo Reserva 2021 $20 (90 points)

Tightly wound for Carmenère, but slowly reveals subtle dusty cocoa, petrichor and spice notes up front, joining black cherry flavors that ride a wave of briny olive and fresh acidity onto a finish marked by firm tannins and roasted red pepper. Best after 2025. 8,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.
