The Grapes of Roth
Experience and quality are key words in the wine world, and The Grapes of Roth wines are well versed in both. Winemaker Roman Roth's signature label focuses on two varietals, Merlot and Riesling, and has raised the bar in both categories.
The 92 point Parker-rated Grapes of Roth Merlot has all the complexity and concentration of the great Right Bank Bordeaux wines. Lush plum and cherry fruit drive the wine on a solid structure that opens to a long and memorable finish. What differentiates this wine from other fine Merlots is the elegant illustration of terrior; the wine has a sense of place that makes it unique among celebrated reds. This is a beautiful wine.
German winemakers have a penchant for Riesling, and The Grapes of Roth is pleased to present three outstanding wines. The 2009 Grapes of Roth Riesling is perfect for any celebration, special occasion, or romantic dinner. Especially food-friendly, the wine opens with a lush apricot nose, then elegantly shows rich melon balanced by hints of flint and lime. It is a dry Riesling according to the guidelines of the International Riesling Foundation, yet is fully saturated with flavor and character. The finish is long and exotic, reminiscent of the world's best Rieslings.
Taking it one step further is The Grapes of Roth Virgin Riesling, produced in extremely small quantities from pristine seedless berries that were hand selected in the vineyard. This time consuming process is not without reward, resulting in a remarkable wine with concentration, elegance, vibrancy, and length.
The fourth wine in The Grapes of Roth portfolio is The Nobel Roth, a Trockenbeerenauslese Riesling, created in pursuit of being the perfect dessert wine. The goal is lofty, but this wine exceeds all expectations. Honey, pineapple, and ripe peach flavors play against hints of minerality. The wine is complex, but once in your glass it becomes a total hedonistic experience.
If you love great wine, The Grapes of Roth is an essential component in your cellar.
