Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 vintage of the Chardonnay is 100 percent barrel fermented in French oak with only a touch of new oak to maintain true varietal expression. It displays aromas of citrus zest, butterscotch and sweet oak accompanied by focused and concentrated flavors of melons, apricots, pineapple and other tropical notes. This wine has excellent balance with a bright, layered finish and a crisp minerality.

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.
