Critical Acclaim

88 Points
International Wine Cellar
"Dark purple. Powerful aromas of dark berry preserves and licorice, with a smoky overtone. Lush and expansive, offering hefty black and blue fruit flavors. Finishes a bit warm, but this seamless cabernet packs a lot of fruit for the money and finishes with good energy and cling."

Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby red with intense aromas of red fruits of and cassis. Soft notes of plum and blackberry followed by a hint of vanilla. Abundant flavors of ripe cherries and plums up front, highlight balanced acidity, soft tannins and good structure.

Full-bodied with a long and concentrated finish accented by fruit and vanilla notes.

Try Root: 1 Cabernet with spicy meat dishes like ginger beef or peppercorn tenderloin. The rich, ripe flavors also complement hearty Italian fare like chicken or eggplant parmigiana and is a decadent finish to a meal served with chocolate truffles.

Alcohol by Volume: 14%
