2016 Roth Heritage Red, Sonoma County
Double Gold Medal Winner - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition 2019
The 2016 Heritage Red is a bold blend of some of our favorite regions throughout the south-eastern parts of Sonoma County. Deep ruby in color, this wine offers luscious aromas of boysenberry, cocoa dust and a hint of black pepper. On the palate, bold tannins are balanced by decadent flavors of blackberry, blueberry and white chocolate with hints of vanilla and toasted oak.
