Winemaker's Notes

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 and chocolate.

Critical Acclaim

"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."
88 Points

"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. "

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
