Hein vineyard has been a staple in our Pinot portfolio since 2003 and has remained a favorite of Richard and Roger since they purchased it in 2006, before selling it to their winemaker at the time, Wells Gurthrie, at the end of the decade. The 2015 Hein has a beautiful bouquet of red plum and black currant that intermingles with a hint of cocoa. The high-toned Pinot expresses bright flavors of cherry, gooseberry and red beets throughout the satiny finish.
Bogey Vineyard is owned and farmed by our old friend and long-time Roessler lover Mike Cooper. Named after his dog, the vineyard overlooks Sonoma at 1000' elevation on Sonoma Mountain. The 2015 Bogey's aromatics are alive with blackberry, crushed rose petals, and mint. Notes of sweet black plum with added accents of cassis and savory herbs harmonize on the palate for a juicy finish.
The 2015 vintage of our signature series Three Barrel is less a “blend” than other vintages have been in that all three barrels come from a far western Sonoma Coast vineyard farmed by a long time friend of the winery. The balanced wine reveals aromas of cranberry, plum and star anise. The elegant Pinot evokes a velvety mouthfeel with layers of candied pomegranate, baked raspberries and black tea.
