    Winemaker Notes

    The 2003 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.

    This estate grown and estate bottled wine is a skillful blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot. One will find distinctive aromas of vanilla, clove and anise, with flavors of rich black cherry, plum and licorice. Aged 19 months in French oak barrels (30% new) and an additional 10 months in bottle, this powerful, fruit forward wine displays mouth watering complexity, firm tannins and a rich, elegant finish.

    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.

    Nearly a northern extension of Napa Valley, Alexander Valley starts just north of the small, Knights Valley, and is just a few minutes drive from the Napa town of Calistoga. It is Sonoma County’s hottest AVA. But the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cooler pockets and its soft, alluvial soil is ideal for grape growing, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, some believe that Alexander Valley Cabernets truly rival the best from Napa Valley and many of the heavy-hitter producers have largely invested here.

    In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up over 50% of plantings, Merlot and old vine Zinfandel thrive here. Ample, fleshy Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate white wine production. Some old-vine plantings of Grenache have also been discovered and more recent experiments with Sangiovese and Barbera show great promise.

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
