Arnot-Roberts Que Vineyard Syrah 2019

SKU: 3103000786637727 Categories: ,


24 year old vines planted at 850′ elevation above the town of Occidental about four miles from the Pacific ocean on the Sonoma Coast. Such an inviting, peppered nose of black peppercorn, hot paprika and turmeric with notes of blackberries, black cherries and blackcurrants in the background. Medium-to full-bodied, this immediately pulls you in and does not let go. So much depth and flavor with concentration and consistent intensity. Sleek. There is such fine precision here that allows for nuance and delicacy in the floral and mineral notes, adding layers and layers of compelling complexity. One of the best examples of what syrah is capable of on the Sonoma Coast. Lovely now, but best after 2024. The 2019 Syrah Que Syrah Vineyard, from Nathan Roberts’ home ranch, is bold, powerful and explosive. Inky dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, menthol and gravel wrap together in a deep, potent Syrah that is going to need time to unwind. There is a lot to the 2019, but readers have to be patient. There is so much personality and character here.
