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.
"We will admit that there is a somewhat direct quality to this one, but if grasses and weeds, herbs and leaves are your Sauvignon Blanc thing, then you will find lots to like because those singular notes are quite handsomely and convincingly backed up by fruit that is redolent of sweet lemons, figs and melons. Supple at the front, firmed up nicely at the back and long and continuous, the wine offers depth, vitality and focus at a great price."
