I am all about trying new wines. I love it when I receive a bottle of wine as a gift. This past Christmas, I received several bottles of wine. While some were my usual favorites, I did get some new and interesting varieties.
Root:1 Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 was one of those new never tasted before wines.
I finally got around to that bottle and truly enjoyed it.
This wine was quite fabulous. Pour this dark ruby red into your wine glass and enjoy the perfect blend of flavors. Your taste buds will be rewarded with hints of raspberry, oak, chocolate and spices. It was easy to pick out some of these distinctive flavors. The wine was delicious and perfectly balanced. This wine was smooth, full bodied and savory. For me, it paired well with a nice steak.
Since I enjoyed this wine, I looked for it locally and was surprised that this delicious wine was also inexpensive.
If you are looking for a nice cab to go with your dinner tonight, check this Chilean wine out for yourself.
