2012 Root:1 [The Original Ungrafted] Cabernet Sauvignon
Most vineyards around the world are planted on grafted rootstock, Root One wines are grown on original, ungrafted roots, producing outstanding wines with pure fruit aromas and flavors.
Reflecting the hot, dry climate of the Colchagua Valley, this Cabernet is a rich red with elegant, lush fruit flavors with additional notes of mocha and chocolate; try it with full-flavored cheeses, pastas, roasts, and yes, chocolate.
The tannins and acidity of Cabernet Sauvignon make it a classic with red meat, especially when grilled and served with bitter vegetables, such as broccoli rabe or escarole. Cabernet Sauvignon can easily overpower lighter fare, so be sure to take the weight of the dish into consideration.
