Arnot-Roberts Trousseau North Coast 2018

North Coast Region, California, United StatesSince founding their winery in 2001, childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers (ex-of Pax) and Nathan Lee Roberts have been needle-moving revolutionary producers in Cali. This perfumed trousseau was sourced from three sites across the North Coast, rooted in volcanic cobbles over river stones. This was whole-cluster and native fermented before 11 months in a combination of neutral French oak barrels, puncheons, and foudre. Pouring a light, hazy hue, this light red is infiltrated with a smoked stone/ash vein that runs through the light plum, forest berries, wild blueberries, dried cherries, fragrant dried iris. Acidity is rhubarb tart and lofted via the whole cluster, and tannins are long and lithe, hugging this to a lingering finish. Take with a light chill and a charcuterie platter.Tasted: 04 April 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 60.00 private wine shops Producer: Arnot-RobertsDistributors: Liquid Art Selections
