Arnot-Roberts El Dorado Gamay
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.
Through good fortune and a keen eye, they have identified vineyard sources that are both singular and extraordinary. Collaboration with dedicated and passionate growers is paramount in the farming of these sites and vinification of their wines.
Classic bouquet of cherry, cranberry, pepper, stony soil ones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is medium-full, tangy and complex, with good acids, a bit of tannin and fine length and grip on the well-balanced finish.
