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.

A lot more fruit than Napa. But nice and complex wine.

Very fruit forward; slightly underripe plum, sweet cherry, hint of cigar; simple but has a spine

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