Root 1 Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

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.

Oak and earth frame attractive black currant and weedy Cabernet aromas on the nose with lovely tar, grilled beef, and roasted chili nuance. Plump and smooth, showing real polish in the mouth with supple tannins and integrated acids supporting broad black cherry and black currant fruit. the wine shows more complexity on the nose and lacks a little energy in the mouth, but is still very attractive with rich fruit and a supple texture people will love. The finish is short if clean with nice black fruit. 85pts

Perfectly ripe grapes yielded a beautifully colored and complex Cabernet that is rich ruby in color with dark cherry, black current, toffee and mocha notes. Silky tannins and good structure lead to a long and complex finish accented with vanilla notes.
