“All four of our amazing sites are located in various portions of the Sonoma Coast region and consistently produce fruit that is loaded with intense character, making this one of our hallmark bottlings.”
About This Wine
Comprised of fruit from four different organically farmed vineyards across the Sonoma Coast (Que Syrah Vineyard, Solas Vineyard, Clary Ranch, Baker Lane Vineyard), this Syrah is made to be drunk fresh and in its youth.
Syrah is well suited for life on the Sonoma Coast as the loose clusters and thick skins manage the cool and often damp growing conditions well. The long slow growing season near the edge of the continent provides complete ripeness at low sugar levels, resulting in a wine of deep colour that has generous fruit character with an undercurrent of earth and spice.
Each vineyard bestows its own unique character to this wine, creating a complex Syrah full of life and approachability upon release.
About Arnot Roberts
Arnot-Roberts was founded in Healdsburg in 2001 by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts, with one barrel of wine made in their basement.
Growing up together in the Napa Valley, from an early age they were immersed in the vineyards and winemaking of the early 1980’s. After college, the duo followed their passion into the wine industry with Nathan joining his father as a cooper of oak wine barrels and Duncan pursuing winemaking.
The focus of Arnot-Roberts is to produce distinctive, site-driven wines that highlight the nature of the unique terroirs in which the grapes are grown.
Some of the vineyards are old and dry-farmed, some are newer plantings but all are farmed, and cared for by passionate and conscientious growers, which is paramount to producing the most honest and expressive wines possible.
