Root: 1 Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Deep garnet in color with bright reflections. Aromas of ripe berries, cassis, plum, and dark cherry, followed by light toast notes. Juicy red berry and mocha flavors with a full-bodied structure, balanced by smooth tannins and a lengthy finish. Root: 1 Cabernet pairs well with grilled steak or a hearty meat-sauce pasta. The ripe, full-bodied flavors also complement roasted vegetables and spicy soups. A delightful match to chocolate desserts!
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah. Produced and bottled by Vinya Ventisquero. Chile is a true rarity in the wine world. Unique geographic & climatic forces have allowed it to remain one of very few grape-growing regions in the world where the original European rootstocks survive, unaffected by phylloxera—the disease that forced grape growers worldwide to graft vines onto generic rootstocks. The grapes for Root:1 are hand picked from two of Chile's most well known viticultural regions, Maipo and Colchagua. The wine is grown, harvested, blended, and bottled to create a balanced, fruit forward, expressive Cabernet true to the terroir of Chile's best viticultural regions.
