Winemaker's Notes:

Roth Estate is committed to making wines with the truest and best expression of the diverse and idyllic growing conditions in Sonoma County. The 2010 Roth Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of fresh flowers and dried citrus notes. On the palate, the wine is bright and refreshing with balanced notes of grapefruit, key lime and fresh tropical flavors. Fermented entirely in stainless-steel tanks, it has bright acidity and a minerality accent in its crisp, persistent finish.

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.
