Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Red Fruit, Herbs, Orange peel, Black cherry
Arnot-Roberts was founded in 2001 in Healdsburg, California by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Duncan and Nathan grew up in the midst of vineyards and winemakers in the Napa Valley. Each took an interest in the wine industry, with Nathan following his father’s lead as a cooper, and Duncan pursuing winemaking in renowned wineries in Napa and Sonoma.
The Heaven and Earth vineyard is considered by many winemakers amongst the best sights for Pinot Noir anywhere. This lovely Pinot Noir has detailed texture, soaring aromatics, and is intensely savory with pronounced tannin and balanced acid. Black cherry, plum, raspberry, sage, spice, leather, lavender and spice infuse the pliant and expressive palate. It will be a good match with duck. mushrooms, or turkey.
