'The 2018 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is fabulous. Inky, peppery and savory, the Syrah Sonoma Coast is just tremendous. I especially like the interplay of fruit density and energy. The 2018 is somehow rich and yet also light on its feet. A rush of blueberry, black pepper, sage and mint builds in a racy, super-expressive Syrah that hits all the right notes. Bright floral-infused top notes punctuate the finish. The Sonoma Coast Syrah is a blend from Que Syrah, Clary Ranch, Baker Lane and Solas. Drink 2020-2023.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 93/100 (Apr 2020)

'This Sonoma Coast Syrah is a blend of four sites, all fermented whole cluster and aged half in concrete tanks and half in neutral barriques for 10 months. The nose shows high-toned red plums, black cherries and allspice. The palate is precise and savoury, full of leather, sage and and espresso characters. A charming Syrah with a Pinot Noir heart. Drinking Window 2020 - 2032.' – Matthew Luczy, Decanter, 93/100 (May 2020)

'Vibrant purple colour. Violet, black cherry and pepper – super-classic for Syrah. Fine-grained tannins that give quite a bit of grip on the finish, and bright acidic bite. There's loads of lightness and lift here, and it shows the delicate face of Syrah without compromising on fruit ripeness.' – Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20

Producer information Arnot-Roberts was founded in Healdsburg in 2001 by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Beginning with one barrel of wine made in their basement, the winery started small and grew slowly by sourcing grapes from some of the most remarkable vineyards in California. Duncan and Nathan grew up together in the Napa Valley and from an early age were surrounded by vineyards and 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.
