Winemaker's Notes:

From the same 53-acre hillside estate in the Alexander Valley that nurtures our ultra premium Lancaster Estate Red Wine, comes our first release from the 2002 vintage, Roth Cabernet Sauvignon. Our Roth label represents tremendous value from such pedigreed stock.

This estate grown and bottled blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc delivers black cherry, plum and cassis flavors with distinctive spice and tobacco aromas. After 18 months in French oak barrels (50% new) and an additional 10 months in bottle, this powerful and juicy wine displays integrated tannins and a long length in the palate.

About Roth:

Roth Estate is a family-owned winery dedicated to crafting full-flavored wines grown in exemplary Sonoma County vineyards. Beginning in 2001, Roth committed to producing classic Bordeaux varietals in Alexander Valley. A decade later the winery expanded its winemaking to include cool-climate varietals from the Sonoma Coast.

From the same 60 hillside acres in the southeast corner of the Alexander Valley that nurtures Lancaster Estate, comes their newest release, Roth Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tom Prentice, Lancaster Estate’s vineyard manager has totally replanted this site since he arrived here from Screaming Eagle in early 1995. With the low-yielding older vines going exclusively to Lancaster Estate’s flagship wine, their signature blend, Roth becomes a tremendous value from such a pedigreed stock.
