Winemaker's Notes:

Roth Sauvignon Blanc is an expression of its Alexander Valley origins. The debut 2009 vintage has distinct tropical characters with fragrant lychee and lively pineapple flavors. Our winery has added this classic Bordeaux white to compliment our tradition and focus on making elegant Bordeaux inspired Cabernets. While our Cabernet is sourced from the southern hillsides of Alexander Valley, our Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from top quality vineyards in the central and northern portion of Alexander Valley, along the meanders of the Russian River. To maintain the brightness and delicate flavors, the wine was aged exclusively in stainless steel.

About Roth:

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.
