THE REVIEW

This sensational California Syrah will captivate you! The winery is redefining domestic Syrah with its throwback to Old World Rhone.
    To say the 2011 Arnot-Roberts Syrah is atypical is an understatement. It embraces texture, spice and lower alcohol. It will complement your food, not overpower it. It deviates from the jammy style so often associated with California Syrahs (and reds in general for that matter).
    The coastal fruit is a critical component of this delicious red. In fact, three coastal vineyards with their cool micro-climates were hand selected for the 2011 vintage.
    From its inviting nose of pantry spice to its rustic backbone, your glass will fill with the classic aromatics of dark fruit, crushed stone, spice and earth. Black pepper, smoked meat, herbs, and minerals dance on the palate. This medium-bodied wine has a mouth filling, rustic texture, great acidity, and a long, enticing finish.
    California is definitely giving the Northern Rhone a run for its money with the 2011 Arnot-Roberts Syrah. Enjoy now and over the next 7 years.Read More »
