Winemaker's Notes:

Rich garnet in color with intense aromas of ripe red fruits. Bright notes of plum and cherry followed by a hint of vanilla. Abundant flavors of juicy, ripe berries and a hint of toast, with balanced fresh acidity, soft tannins and good structure. Full-bodied with a smooth finish.

Root 1 Cabernet pairs well with barbequed steak or a colorful, fresh stir-fry. The rich, ripe flavors also complement dishes like grilled chicken or shrimp. Before dinner, try it with hard salami or salted nuts, and a selection of mild to medium cheeses.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauiv gnon, 15% Syrah
