Tasting Notes: Strawberry, Tea, Violet, Earth
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 obscure grape is originally from the Jura region of France and some of California's up and coming winemakers are doing it justice on the west coast. This single vineyard wine is complex but light bodied with medium acidity and smooth tannins. On the palate there are notes of strawberries, sour cherries, tea, floral, earth, smoke, and fresh cool herbs. Meant for turkey, sausages, roast ham and rich cheeses.
