Description

"We grow the grapes for Root: 1 Carmenère in our Colchagua Valley vineyard. There, the notoriously cranky Carmenère has the sun exposure and rich soil it needs to flourish. Though it’s most often used as a blending grape elsewhere, Carmenère has found its spotlight in Chile, showcasing its deep flavors and telltale flash of bitterness to dramatic effect. Tasting notes: Blackberries, plums, cherries, and warm spice with smooth and balanced vanilla notes. The supple tannins lend itself to pairings like barbecued brisket and thick-cut bacon, but equally as good matched with a full spread of Spanish tapas or stuffed peppers."
