Roth Estate is committed to making wines with the truest and best expression of the diverse and idyllic growing conditions in Sonoma County. The 2009 Roth Estate Pinot Noir, grown on the Sonoma Coast, has pure, ripe varietal flavors of red and Bing cherries that are well-focused, elegant and persistent. It was aged in French-oak barrels for 18 months. It is a beautiful display of cool-climate Pinot Noir, with excellent depth, and complexity of flavors accented with hints of sweet oak.
Jesse Katz focuses on Russian River Valley vineyards with gravelly, well-drained soils for this wine. It has a spicy, conifer forest edge to contrast ripe, high-toned raspberry flavors. The finish is juicy, pungent and clean, with the fruit sweetness to match roast duck.
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.
