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.
A rich red wine with black currant, mocha and chocolate notes.
Located between the massive Andes Mountains and the low coastal mountains of the Pacific Ocean, the warm and dry vineyards of El Suspiro are world-renowned for producing outstanding red wines with rich color, full body and varietal character. The steep rock soil maintains moisture for the vines during the intense summer heat while the coastal mountains temper the cool maritime influences of the Pacific.
Root:1 Cabernet Sauvignon is an exceptional match with full-flavored cheeses, pasta with red sauce, steak, ribs, and chocolate.
