Pleasant red blend from a Sonoma Foley-Johnson winery. Very well balanced considering the amount of varietals in this wine. 25% Syrah, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec, 8% Zinfandel, 8% petit Verdot, 15% merlot, and 10% petite Syrah. Big, bold, and blended to the point it’s hard to pick out the different grapes. Strong tannic backbone with a pleasant amount of black fruit up front. I am a fan of Roth and this doesn’t disappoint.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Great fruity nose with black currants, blackberries, vanilla, sweet cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, peppercorn, spices, cloves and leather.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, coke, peppercorn and earth.

Medium on the finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice surprise. A good red blend from Sonoma County. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel.

This 4 year old is still drinking nicely, but will not last for long (Started declining after 90 minutes). Good right out of the bottle and good for parties too.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

A blend of 30% Malbec, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Syrah, 13% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah and 7% Petit Verdot. Aged for 17 months in oak barrels.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$27.

Changed the fruit line up this vintage. No longer Zin and Syrah based. More cab, malbec, and lower percentages of many other red grapes. Stronger Bordeaux style. Dryer, pummeling tannins. Terrific and needs a good decanting.

Ripe nose. Strong tannins. Chalky, fruity mid palate, bone dry finish. California but food friendly.

Instantly pleasing nose of dark berry, currant, vanilla cream, and black tea with a touch of bergamot. Both extracted and dry on the palate. The finish doesn't sail on, but a more than adequate mid-palate keeps this interesting. Very food friendly and an easy drinker.
