A little spicy for my palate. Leaning toward a softer Cab Franc. Not bad though. Novelty coming from original ungrafted root stock.

Bom, viu! Frutado, equilibrado e cheiroso. Pareceu que o processo de fabricação foi muito bom. #root1 #cabernetsauvignon #colchaguavalley

Medium-bodied, dark berries and subtle cassis; this wine isn't particularly bold, I wish it was a bit more flavorful. A touch hot on the finish.

Dark ruby. A little thin but nice fruit, cherry and plum. Not overly tannic but soft and easy drinking

Not worth buying definitely wouldn’t get again. It’s bad for a cheap wine when you can get a better tasting wine for the same price.

Luscious, and quite dry with hints of chocolate and tobacco. At Kaia & Jordan‘s, Christmastime 2017.

Just the right amount of sweetness. Nice bottle of wine.
