Roth Estate is committed to making wines with the truest and best expression of the diverse and idyllic growing conditions in Sonoma County. The young vines woke up to spring rains in late March of 2009 supporting vigorous growth prior to bloom. An even fruit set led to a balanced crop with mild summer conditions and a warm August encouraging ripening and flavor development. Despite early October rains, an early harvest allowed the grapes to arrive in pristine condition packed with classic varietal character.
The 2009 vintage of Roth Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful aromas of nutmeg, sweet oak and red cherries that carry through to the palate. This bright Cabernet Sauvignon has soft, balanced tannins that are complemented by notes of black currant and red berries with an elegant finish of sweet vanilla. Aged 18 months sur lie in 100% French oak barrels, it benefits from decanting and is drinking bright and beautiful right now. It will gain even greater complexity with two to six years in the cellar.
