Just arrived at both Braintree and Needham.. we have a total of 96 bottles of the very best wine produced out of Chile by the Domaines de Rothschild. Le Dix de Los Vascos is sourced from 70+ year old, low yielding vines from the Viña Los Vascos estates El Fraile vineyard in the Colchagua Valley. Originally introduced in 1996 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Rothschild families work at Los Vascos, this Grande Cuveé selection continues to represent the pinnacle of red wine production (and particularly Cabernet Sauvignon) in Chile.

Crafted from a blend of 85+% Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Carmenére and Syrah,the grapes were hand-harvested and then rigorously selected utilizing a sorting table. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats at 86°F, with pumping over, in order to extract all of the grapes’ finest qualities. There was a long maceration period of 25 days and the wines were matured for 18 months in new oak barrels from the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) cooperage. There are no corners cut in the production of Le Dix.. only the best will do.
"Beautiful, intense red color with garnet shades. The nose is underscored by ripe cherry aromas laced with delicate hints of blackberry, followed by licorice, saffron, paprika, nutmeg, white and black pepper aromas overlaid with notes of cocoa, tobacco, and cedar. Generous, all-embracing mouthfeel, pleasantly dominant, balanced tannins offer the perfect complement to notes of black olives and a delicate nuance of bitter chocolate. A wine of outstanding elegance and depth."- Winemakers Notes

Let's take a quick look at the press:

95-96 Points, James Suckling
"The depth of fruit in this barrel sample is impressive with layers of round tannins, roses and currants. Full body, savory fruit and a long and intense finish. Structured with length and beautiful depth. 85% cabernet sauvignon, 10% carmenere, and 5% syrah. Spent 18 months in barrel, mostly new oak". August 2014

91 Points, Vinous
"Opaque ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced dark berry and floral pastille scents are complemented by pipe tobacco and cedar. Smooth and velvety on the palate, offering sweet cherry compote and rose flavors that tighten up slowly with air. Shows very good clarity and energy on the finish, which features smooth tannins and a suave mocha quality."-- JR

90 Points- Wine Spectator, Wine & Spirits, and Decanter

Now that we are fully into October and the chill in the air calls for bigger and bolder reds, a feature such as this 2012 Le Dix de Los Vascos with it's classic Cabernet Sauvignon character and structure is just the answer that we are looking for.
