Winemaker's Notes:

A rich blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah.

Deep ruby red with intense aromas of red fruits and cassis. Soft notes of plum and blackberry followed by a hint of vanilla. Abundant flavors of ripe cherries and plums up front highlight balanced acidity, soft tannins and good structure. Full-bodied with a long and concentrated finish accented by fruit and vanilla notes. Perfect with grilled steak, spicy pork or chicken dishes, and savory garlic or pepper flavors. Pair this wine with ripe cheeses, like Emmental, gruyere, or soft, herbed brie. Root: 1 Cabernet is also a great match with dark chocolate or rich, creamy desserts.
