Winemaker's Notes:

A regional blend of Sonoma Coast fruit with the majority of the grapes coming from the Russian River Valley, California's premier appellation for both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The gravelly and well drained Gold Ridge soils combined with the cooling influence of the pacific ocean are ideal for bright, vibrant Chardonnay. Aromas of honey, citrus zest and vanilla are complemented on the palate by concentrated flavors of honeydew melon, ripe pineapple and light tropical notes. The natural minerality in this wine matches the vibrant acidity and brings structure and balance to this beautifully crisp Chardonnay.

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.
