2015 Roth Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
At Roth Estate, we believe great wine begins with great fruit and the relationship between terroir, rootstock, clone and vineyard is at the heart of it. That’s why for our Pinot Noir we choose fruit from the finest vineyards in the Sonoma Coast region. Our 2015 Pinot Noir displays bright fruit-forward aromas of black cherry and currant on the nose. Rich and full on the palate, its expressions of raspberry, Bing cherry and clove spices are balanced by sweet oak and lush tannins. Bold and complex in character, this Pinot Noir is indeed a direct expression of its Sonoma Coast origins.

2015 made for an excellent vintage in the Sonoma Coast! 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 prime quality with a nice acidity. The fruit was harvested from September 19th – September 12th, 2015 at optimum ripeness.
Roth Estate is committed to making wines that best express the diverse and idyllic growing conditions in the top regions of Sonoma County. The vineyards that we work with for our Pinot Noir are situated throughout the cool-climate Sonoma Coast. These vineyards are defined by their coastal influence and spread throughout the vast region. The cool conditions caused by the fog and wind that breeze through the Petaluma Gap, lengthen the region’s growing season. These cool temperatures combined with gravelly, well-drained soil, make the Sonoma Coast the optimal habitat for producing internationally recognized, high-quality fruit.
