2018 Root One Cabernet Sauvignon


The Root One Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile is the bargain hunter’s dream come true. This ten dollar Cab from South America drinks like a fifteen and up Cab from California!

It is not a great wine, but it sure was good with a dish of Chicken Parmesan with Spaghetti Marinara on the side.

It is a pretty dark red in color, with a nose which broadcasts the scent of ripe berries. The flavors are dark berries, mixed with black cherry, and a taste of toasty oak toward the end. The finish lingers on the palate, awaiting another sip. The alcohol content is 14%, and Norm’s score is 88.

Not only good with Chicken Parm, this Chilean Cab would pair well with a hearty stew, or grilled chops. The best thing, is that it is available almost everywhere in the market place, including your local supermarket.

Score: 88

Price: $10-$12
