This soft, round Merlot blends in small amounts of Malbec and Syrah to offer a powerful, full-bodied frame. It's lengthy on the palate in tart red fruit, integrated oak and fresh acidity.

Vintage
2015 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. The grapes were harvested from September 23rd to October 1st, 2015 at optimum maturity. Then it was fermented in 100 stainless steel tanks with regular pump-overs. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was aged in French, American and Hungarian oak (30 new) for 16 months.

Winery background

Beginning in 2001, Roth started producing Cabernet Sauvignon blends from hillside locations in the famed Alexander Valley. A decade later the winery expanded to include Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot and also ventured west toward the Sonoma Coast for cool climate sites for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. A state-of-the-art winemaking facility, tasting room and caves are located in Healdsburg.
