2015 Roth Heritage Red, Sonoma County
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
The 2015 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 flavors of raspberry, blueberry, cherry, cassis, dark chocolate, and hints of clove spice and peppercorn.

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 from this vintage were of high quality with a nice acidity. The fruit was harvested at optimal maturity from September 19th to October 14th, 2015.
