Winemaker 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.

Critical Acclaim

CG 91
Connoisseurs' Guide

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.

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.

Rhône White Blends

View all wine

Full-bodied and flavorful, Rhône white blends are made in France’s Rhone Valley and beyond, proving most successful in Spain, Australia, South America, and California’s Central Coast. They are made from a combination of two or more of the white varieties permitted in the Rhône, potentially including Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier.

In the Glass

Each variety brings something different to the table. Round, textural Grenache Blanc contributes green apple and white stone fruit flavors; weighty Marsanne adds structure and delicate honeysuckle aromas; russet-colored Roussanne lends intriguing herbal, tea-like notes, and Viognier provides an oily texture and an elegant floral perfume. The flavor of the final wine will depend on the chosen components of the blend and their respective proportions.

Perfect Pairings

Since Rhône white blends tend to be fairly full-bodied, they can be quite versatile food pairing wines and can work with light to medium rich meals that might normally be matched with reds. Meatier fish dishes with bold seasoning like grilled swordfish with caper butter or baked, herb-crusted mahi mahi are natural allies for these flavorful wines. Other ideal dishes include roast pork in mustard sauce, poached lobster with beurre blanc, or a rich and savory vegetable quiche. `

Sommelier Secret

In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are most common, in the appellations of St.-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, and St-Péray (in Condrieu and Château-Grillet, whites are made from Viognier only). The Southern Rhône, on the other hand, has much more variety, with many more permitted grapes including Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul Blanc, and Ugni Blanc.
