Root:1 Cabernet Sauvignon

The vineyards of the Maipo Valley extend from the city of Santiago to the west where they meet the cool coast. Known for their distinctive renditions of well-balanced reds, the warmth of the sun and oscillating winds from the Andes provides ideal conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. Root: 1 is particularly notable for its elegant, lush, and ripe fruit flavors, a rich red wine with black currant, mocha and chocolate notes.
