Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red with intense aromas of red fruits of 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.

Try Root: 1 Cabernet with spicy meat dishes like ginger beef or peppercorn tenderloin. The rich, ripe flavors also complement hearty Italian fare like chicken or eggplant parmigiana and is a decadent finish to a meal served with chocolate truffles.

My Notes:
