Root: 1

While most vineyards around the world are planted on grafted rootstock, estate-grown Root:1 wines are cultivated on original, ungrafted roots, producing outstanding quality wine with pure, fruit flavors and aromas.

Root: 1 on Snooth

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

  • Took the day off Friday--my seniority means lots of vacation, my house project means I took very little of it this year.  Wife and I headed up to Spring Mountain Vineyards, courtesy a most-excellent Snooth-friend, who made us a gift of one of his annual visits and tastings--as a member of their wine club, he receives several and he was unable to...

    A decent red from California. Not great but very drinkable. Read More

    Wine review by anstett


  • Unless you bought them with aging potential in mind, a fair few of your 2013 pink and white wines won’t be drinkable by next spring. Guzzle down the last of those quick-to-turn bottles, cellar a few others, and ready yourself for the onset of fall wines. Even if you do not live in a starkly transitional climate, this a great time to think about ... Read More

  • Root 1 Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Black fruit and black pepper aromas with a bit of a green note and some herb. Quite spicy in the mouth with toast and blackberry flavors and some bright red fruit shocking the front of the palate with fresh acidity and some herbal notes and a finish of black cherry and cream. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Recent research shows that a glass of red wine a day is like twenty minutes of vigorous exercise. So before summer rosés officially take hold, get in on the last gasps of Cabernet. I tasted through forty different Cabernets, all under $16. There are some superb examples here that you’re going to want to try. Cabernet, because of the value inhere... Read More

  • I posted this as a reply to another thread about travel shock, but that thread never got bumped up to the front page, for some reason. Guess I'll have to start a new topic, as my curiosity remains unsatiated.So I've done my reading on the subject (http://www.wineloverspage.com/dibbern/shock07.phtml, et al) but I'm looking for any anecdotal evide...

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • Hi all,Just want to introduce myself. I have recently started taking an interest in wine and have come to the point where I want to start learning more about it. At this point I can identify which lines I like, and which I don’t, but I really hope to be able to take it a step further and understand what makes it so that I like certain wines and ... Read More
