A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Syrah.
Rich ruby color with aromas of ripe berries and soft plum are followed by tastes of
black cherry, soft vanilla and dark chocolate. The silky tannins, strong balance and
good structure support a long complex finish.
Artfully accompanies grilled meats, ripe cheeses, Italian and Mediterranean cuisine
"A very good value-priced Cav with fresh tomato, herb, black cherry, blackberry and earthy aromas. The palate is healthy and stands up to scrutiny, while the flavors of casis, berry, chocolate and pepper are correct and more than pleasant. Long and lasting on the finish. The best Root:1 Cab to date."
"Ruby-red. Spicy red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by mint, licorice and black cardamom. A fresh, focused midweight, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and good tangy snap. Very lively but could use a bit more heft; the finish is focused, brisk and nicely persistent.
