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.

Root:1 refers to the fact that in these vineyards in Chile's Colchagua Valley the grapevines grow on original rootstock. Most grapevines in Europe and the U.S. have been grafted and replanted due to the root louse phylloxera. Original rootstock means deep roots and more complex flavored grapes. Produced by Vina Ventisquero, this Cabernet shows remarkable complexity and character for such a great value wine. Beverage Dynamics scored this wine 95 points saying "From ungrafted of original European rootstock that have never been blighted by phylloxera; bold, rich varietal aromas and flavors in a ripe, mouth-filling, and easy-to-enjoy style; richness, quality and value."
