Arnot-Roberts Sonoma Coast Syrah 2021


Tasting sixty-odd American wines recently, the ’21 Arnot-Roberts Sonoma Coast Syrah was hands down my favourite. Sensual aromatics of sweet dark and red fruits, lavender, whole bunch spice and kirsch. 100% whole bunch is hard to imagine, as they in no way dominate or overpower the fruit. Juicy, sweet and tangy fruit – texturally the silk metamorphosing into chalk. Pure, bright and intense, a statement in unforced power, supreme elegance and terrific density. Waters Wine Co


The 2021 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is fabulous. Dark, rich and resonant, the 2021 offers up an exotic mix of red/purplish fruit, lavender and dried flowers. Today the fruit is quite forward. I imagine Syrah aromatics will develop more fully with time in the bottle. Readers will find a Syrah of real power and substance. The 2021 is a blend from Solas, Baker Lane and Que Syrah, done with 100% stems. I loved it. 94 points, Vinous


This cuvée exemplifies cold-climate Syrah grown on the rugged Sonoma Coast and is one of our hallmark bottlings.  A blend of four amazing sites grown on the coast: Clary Ranch, Que Syrah, Baker Lane and Solas vineyards. Syrah is well suited for life on the Sonoma Coast as the loose clusters and thick skins manage the cool, windy and often damp growing conditions well. The long slow growing season near the edge of the continent provides complete ripeness at low sugar levels, resulting in a wine of deep colour that has intense fruit character loaded with an undercurrent of earth and spice. The vineyards are each harvested and fermented separately without destemming, then blended together for aging. This is the Syrah to enjoy in its youth while our single vineyard Syrah’s mature in the cellar. – Winemaker’s Notes
