Deep ruby color, intense aromas of red fruits and cassis, with some hints of vanilla. Well balanced with soft tannins and good structure. Abundance of fruit flavors like cherries and plums, with a complex and long finish.
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.
The 2003 vintage was dry and warm with low yields, perfect for red wines with good tannin maturity, nice development of flavors, and good concentration. This vintage is one of the best years in the last decade for red wines.
