Root:1 Heritage Red 2013 - $12

Maipo Valley, Chile

Dark berries accompanied with hints of black pepper and leather aromas filled my glass.  For $12 retail and $7 on sale, I might have said “woah.”  There may have been a slight musty hint at first but that went away quickly.  The flavors combine blackberries and dark cherry with a subtle spice.  On the finish, traces of vanilla complement firm tannins.  Drinks like a sophisticated old world red.  The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Syrah and Petit Verdot.  Found this at World Market.  Amazing value with great flavors.
