To us, this is the platonic ideal of a rosé. It's beautiful in your glass and deliciously juicy enough just to sip contentedly in the sun. But get beneath the surface and it's a real wine: complex and savory enough to elevate fresh fish or dishes or even Thai takeout; mineral and terroir-focused enough to be worth paying attention to; and made with the care of all of Arnot-Roberts' wines.

Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts, along with a small group of fellow trailblazers, have led the way in helping redefine what California wine can be and taste like. Their wines have a deep sense of terroir, refined and elegant structure and are deliciously complex. In 2001, when they began this endeavor, finding local wines with these qualities was tough. But along with their aforementioned colleagues, they started a small revolution and these days you can walk into many a wine shop and find an example of what's been coined, “The New California Wine”.

But, perhaps a better sobriquet for Duncan and Nathan's wines might be The New California Classic. Their wines are a nod to the great California wines made in the decades before Parkerization. They have shown that California is capable of producing wines that shine in their youth and will gracefully age to glorious full maturity.

Arnot Roberts has become synonymous with New California wine in a lot of ways. Since their founding in 2001, they've spent a lot of time scouring the state for some of the best previously unknown vineyard sites, doing so with a respect for the environment that is nothing short of remarkable. They work with all their growers to encourage organic farming and minimize their environmental impact: these are wines that are not only delicious, but that you can feel good about drinking.

Like all great winemakers, the cornerstone of Duncan and Nathan’s approach starts in the vineyard. They are dedicated to finding super distinct and unique sites from Mendocino in the North to the Santa Cruz Mountains South of the Bay Area. Their enormous respect for California’s terroir have led them to some of the state’s most celebrated vineyards. But they aren’t just about the famous sites; they know the state is full of amazing and still unheralded regions and they’ve done an incredible job of hunting out great vines in very special spots.

What importer Polaner Selections has to say about this wine...

75% Touriga Nacional, 9% Tinta Cao, 9% Trincadeira, 7% Grenache
The 2022 Rose is a blend of - 75% Touriga Nacional, 9% Trincadeira, 9% Tinta Cao, 7% Grenache. Arnot Roberts began making Rosé from Touriga Nacional in 2010. They were compelled by the grape’s deep color, brilliant acidity and aromatic complexity even at low sugar content. Touriga is a late-ripening Portuguese variety that needs some heat to mature, and they have sought out vineyards suited to this hearty variety. The original fruit source came from the rocky volcanic soils of the Luchsinger vineyard, located at 1400' in the Clear Lake AVA. In 2015, Touriga from St. Amant at the base of of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Amador County was added. In 2021 they added Touriga and Tinta Cau from St. Jorge vineyard in Lodi’s Mokelumne River AVA, and in 2022 the Trincadeira as well. The final piece was an old vine block of Grenache planted at 2,800 feet in The Fenaughty vineyard above Placerville.
A combination of Volcanic (Luchsinger), Sandy, Granitic Loam (St Amant), Granitic Alluvial (St Jorge) and White Diatomaceous Rock (Fenaughty) soils
Farmed using organic methods
The fruit from all of these vineyard sites is hand-harvested, then lightly crushed by foot to release some color prior to pressing. The juice is fermented with native yeasts and full native malolactic in all stainless steel tanks
