Winemaker's Notes:

Roth Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the same 53-acre Alexander Valley estate that produces the highly acclaimed Lancaster Estate wines. This up and coming producer is singularly committed to only crafting wines composed from the classic Bordeaux varietals.

Roth Cabernet Sauvignon is an expression of its origins. The 2004 vintage delivers aromas of vanilla, clove and anise, with flavors of rich black cherry, plum and licorice. This fruit-forward wine displays mouth-watering complexity, firm tannins and a rich, elegant finish. After 19 months of aging in French oak barrels (30% new), we bottled this wine unfiltered for purity of expression.

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.
