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 Montecillo Vineyard, situated at 1700’, is one of the oldest plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon in Sonoma County. This captivating single-vineyard Cabernet from Arnot-Roberts is complex, full bodied, well structured, with a strong tannic backbone. The classic Cabernet palate exudes flavors of cherry, raspberry, currant, blackberry, cherry, bell pepper, olive, asparagus, spice, ginger, oak and vanilla. Pair with a medium rare Chimichurri Steak.
