Tantalizing aromas of cassis, blackberry, blueberry pie and sweet spices. Exudes a pleasurable palate of blackberry, cassis, chocolate cake, vanilla bean, and sweet oak flavors.

Ratings
89 Points - Robert Parker Wine Advocate. The 2013 Merlot has a dense ruby/plum color, loads of black cherry and mocha notes, some fairly heady glycerin (15.5% alcohol), a lush, chewy texture, and a hedonistic, fruit-filled finish. This is a successful cuvée of Merlot to drink over the next 10-12 years. 
Winemaker Notes
Roth Estate is committed to making wines with the truest and best expression of the diverse and idyllic growing conditions in Sonoma County. Our 2013 Sonoma County Merlot is a beautiful dark crimson color that displays tantalizing aromas of cassis, blackberry, blueberry pie and sweet spices on the nose. With a soft, velvety texture and mouth-filling tannins this wine exudes a pleasurable palate of blackberry, cassis, chocolate cake, vanilla bean, and sweet oak flavors.

Production Notes
We had moderate temperatures and consistently dry, warm days throughout the winter and spring. This resulted in ideal grape growing conditions in 2013, adding to prime flavor development. The grapes were harvested September 12th to October 14th, 2013 at optimum ripeness, and then fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks with regular pump-overs. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was aged in American oak (30% new) for 17 months.
