Winemaker's Notes:

The Reserve 2003 is brilliant dark ruby red color with amber hues Overall, a greatly concentrated wine. In the nose, this wine shows tobacco, vanilla, cinnamon and spice aromas. On the palate, this wine features a selection of ripe dark fruit, blackberries, cherries and a touch of blackcurrant. Its gentle, fruity tannins grant it nice persistence and aftertaste.

Los Vascos Reserve may be served with lamb, red meats, and cheeses. May be drunk from release but it can be kept for another 8 years.

About Los Vascos:

Los Vascos traces its roots to approximately 1750 and to the original vineyard of Miguel Echenique. The vineyard passed down through the family throughout the succeeding centuries.

The acquisition of 50% of Los Vascos by Rothschild (Lafite) in 1988 was the result of a careful search among more than one hundred Chilean wines for one that could meet their criteria for excellence. A team of winemakers from Domaine Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) control the viticulture, harvest, maceration, fermentation and aging of the wines at Los Vascos. Strict control of yields from the estate and adherence to the winemaking techniques of Chateau Lafite result in wines of high quality, whose characteristics do not escape connoisseurs. All production is estate bottled.
