Roth Estate Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2006

Member Review by toxik:

I like pure cabernet in general, and dont like them mixed usually, but this blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot is one of the finest i have had in the below $50 range. (I usually dont go above that price range, so pardon me) . It has a very Smooth, Rich and distinctive flavor. The maker suggests, The 2005 vintage has aromas of vanilla, ripe cherry and cinnamon, with flavors of raspberry jam, cocoa and red fruit. I admit my palate is not sophisticated enough to sense each of these ingredients while tasting, but in reverse-engineering, i like most of these ingredients, which is why I might have ended up liking the end result. So if you like the above ingredients, there is a good chance you will like it as well. In short, if you are a Cabernet lover, and are looking for a smooth cabernet, this is a great buy. I've had guests have a second look at that bottle. :-)
