2022 Root:1 Heritage Red Blend -- Here's why you should buy it:

  • Rated 90 points by James Suckling and 89 points by Vinous Media, this is one of the top Red Blend values out there. Vinous described it perfectly : "Indulgent with a creamy feel, this is a juicy red with a velvety finish.”
  • It's not a simple "fruit bomb" of a wine. It offers up peppery and spicy notes of mocha, dark berries, mild tannins, and juicy acidity. There's nice depth, especially for a wine at this price point.
  • At just 13% ABV, it makes for a great "house red" or the perfect red to enjoy with chili, beef stew, or other hearty comfort dishes.
