The Grapes of Roth Merlot 2012MADE BY WöLFFER ESTATE IN SAGAPOACK, NEW YORK
This 100% merlot is rich and velvety with big tannins and elegant structure, and it's perfect for roast or grilled meats.
Roman Roth is the winemaker at Wölffer Estate, and for his signature series of wines, he carefully sources hand-picked and hand-sorted grapes from his favorite vineyards. Roman then ferments them at Wölffer before aging in French oak barrels.
The name is just right – this truly is one of the Great American wines.
