Made from a wealth of red grapes, predominantly Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, this wine is brawny in tones of black fruit, leather and licorice. Gritty in texture on entry, it soften on the midpalate and gives way to a full-bodied lushness.
Roth Heritage is rich and complex with a deep ruby hue. Concentrated aromas of black cherry, violet and vanilla open to an inviting mouthfeel. The wine's palate is bold, layered and silky with black fruit notes balanced by an impressive tannin structure. Finish is long and lively with sweet oak and vanilla nuances.

The 2016 Heritage Red is a bold blend of some of our favorite regions throughout the south-eastern parts of Sonoma County. Deep, dark and purple in color, it draws you in with layered fruit-forward aromas of dark berries, chocolate and sweet oak. It has soft, balanced tannins with a silky mouthfeel that lead into rich avors of raspberry, blueberry, cherry, cassis, dark chocolate, and hints of clove spice and peppercorn.
2016 made for an excellent vintage in Sonoma County! An early start to the growing season was followed by warm temperatures. Consistently sunny days throughout the spring and summer resulted in even ripening of the fruit. e grapes from this vintage were of high quality with a nice acidity. e fruit was harvested at optimal maturity from September 19th to October 14th, 2016.
