Lush, Ripe & Fruity

Chile’s Maipo Valley is the epicenter of the country’s viticulture. That it’s also the home of Root: 1’s Cabernet Sauvignon production is no coincidence. The valley’s proximity to the coast and mix of clay and sandy loam soils create wines that exude minerality and dense, almost chewy tannins. There’s also an unmistakable elegance that calls forth Old World sophistication – a la the famous wines of Bordeaux – without sacrificing the bold fruit flavors that signify a New World Cab.

The combination of the soft breezes from the Pacific and ancient granite soils creates a unique terroir for Cabernet Sauvignon – resulting in a wine that has pure and intense aromas of cassis, black pepper and red berries with great balance
