Big & Bold
I've been a big fan of Roth Cabernet for many years, and have always rated it higher than many of the pricier ones (Trefethen Cab for example). However, their 2009 Cab completely misses the mark. I got 2 bottles, just to make sure. In my humble opinion the acid balance is completely off.
Smooth & Supple
For a $10 wine, I must say this is very impressive. The first sip begged for more depth, but in retrospection, this is a fine Malbec for its class/category. Pretty smooth and balanced. Interesting how they make this work for a value-level wine.
