2018 Roth Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley
Our 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is bold, full-bodied and rich. Dark in color, it displays mighty aromas of intense dark fruit, cassis and cocoa powder. The palate displays exceptional balance with rich and layered flavors of black cherry, plum, mocha, toasted and a subtle minerality. Firm tannins gain power as the wine moves across the palate, leading to a lingering structured finish.
95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec, 2% Syrah, 1% Petit Verdot

After harvest, the wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks where it was cold-soaked and pumped over once a day for several days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was transferred to barrel and stirred weekly until malolactic fermentation was complete. It was aged in French, Hungarian and American oak (30% new) for 18 months prior to bottling.
Roth Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is made from select vineyard sites within the exceptional hillsides of Alexander Valley. The region's low-vigor, volcanic soils coupled with the balance of warm days and cool nights provide intense and concentrated fruit.
