The Root:1 Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard is located in Maipo Valley,  world-renowned for producing outstandin red wines with rich color, full body, and pure varietal character. The rocky slopes of sand over clay help maintain moisture during the intense summer heat, while the coastal mountains temper the

vines with the cool maritime influences of the Pacific Ocean. The

Root: 1 Cabernet Sauvignon,

an elegant reflection of its environment, was fermented in stainless steel tanks and refined for ten months in American and French oak.

About the Vineyard

The vineyard is planted with 377 hectares of vines, which are drip-irrigated with water from deep wells. At full production, yields of some 11 tonnes per hectare are to be expected. The vines are trained along a VSP system.

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet in color with bright reflections. Aromas of ripe berries, cassis, plum and dark cherry, followed by light toast notes. Juicy red berry and mocha flavors with a full-bodied structure, balanced by smooth tannins and a lengthy finish

Food Pairing

meat-sauce pasta. The ripe full-bodied flavors also complement roasted vegetables and spicy soups. A delightful match to chocolate desserts!
