Root:1 Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml - 03622
For the wines of Root 1, grapes are sourced from key appellations in Chile, where sustainable farming and winemaking practices, and a dedication to creating wine firmly rooted in a sense of place is paramount. These core values are why their wines are at the center of shared experiences all over the world. Chile’s Maipo Valley is the epicenter of the country’s viticulture. That it’s also the home of Root: 1’s Cabernet Sauvignon production is no coincidence. The valley’s proximity to the coast and mix of clay and sandy loam soils create wines that exude minerality and dense, almost chewy tannins. There’s also an unmistakable elegance that calls forth Old World sophistication – a la the famous wines of Bordeaux – without sacrificing the bold fruit flavors that signify a New World Cab. A rich red wine with black currant, mocha and chocolate notes. An exceptional match with full-flavored cheeses, pasta with red sauce, steak, ribs, and dark chocolate. It’s great with Monterey Jack cheese !
