Vintage rating: 89 Expected year: 2015. Late ripening fruit that should be consumed within 5 years. A very dark red, going on purple, wine. Scents of ripe red berries intertwined with light spices, vanilla and caramel. The supple tannins, red ripe fruits and dark berries and fresh acidity combined with slight smokiness, vanilla and spices make this a very balanced and surprisingly elegant wine. We have a very versatile wine with a New World profile.

Good wine for the price. Wasn't as vibrant as the 2009 was, but still had a nice balance.

The sommelier where I used to work recommended this to me when we featured it as our wine of the week in our market. One taste and I was hooked! From the initial delicious burst of ripe fruits, to the full bodied taste and finally the excellent finish I enjoyed every drop. I drained the bottle and went back for more. Excellent to pair with meat, but also with a heavier fish like well seasoned salmon. This will be a go to for a while.

Fairly warm and syrupy on the nose, with bits of earth, leather and baked plum. The palate is a touch underdeveloped and herbal in terms of flavor, but there's no shortage of size. Plump and chewy but basic on the finish, with a returning set of herbal berry flavors that could use more coaching.

Opaque ruby. Dark berries and mocha on the nose, augmented by a subtle smoky quality and a touch of cracked pepper. Round and fleshy, displaying slightly loose-knit dark fruit flavors and no rough edges. Finishes smooth, with modest persistence. I'd have liked a bit more focus. The Root:1 wines are made from grapes grown on their original, ungrafted rootstock, which is pretty normal in Chile but quite rare elsewhere, especially in Europe.

Dill and toasted vanilla mix with lightly crisp red and black cherry fruit. Stays slightly firm, with the dill hint lingering on the finish. Drink now.

Light and forward, with grilled herb, cherry and vanilla notes. Drink now.

Bright ruby. Fresh red berries and cherry on the nose, with a smoky licorice note gaining strength with air. A gently sweet midweight that offers fresh raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a kick of zesty acidity. Finishes slightly rigid but with good tangy persistence.
