Arnot-Roberts, Ribolla Gialla Vare Vineyard Napa Valley, 2019

$47.99
"95 Points. The 2019 Ribolla Gialla Vare is fabulous. Rich, ample and layered, the 2019 possesses tremendous depth and textural resonance. All of the phenolic intensity of Ribolla comes through loud and clear. Dried pear, chamomile, spice and almond are some of the many aromas and flavors that build in the glass. The 2019 is fabulous. In fact, the 2019 is the finest vintage of the Arnot-Roberts Ribolla I have tasted" -- Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

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.

VINEYARD
Geoge Vare planted his home vineyard at the foot of Mt. Veeder in the western Napa Valley to Ribolla Gialla and Cabernet Sauvignon. The long, cool growing season at this site is moderated by its proximity to the adjacent Redwood forested slopes of Mt. Veeder and its well drained gravelly soils. These factors lead to slow flavor development, great acid balance and moderate sugar in the resulting grapes.
SOIL
Sandy loam soils
VITICULTURE
Vertical trellis, bilatéral cordon, 3x6 spacing. Approx 2 tons per acre
VINIFICATION
Whole cluster presssed and fermented with native yeasts for primary and malolactic in stainless steel
AGING
aged for 10 months in neutral, Franch oak barrels
PRODUCTION
75 cases
NOTES
19 year old vines planted with cuttings from Gravner in Friuli. Grown in gravelly loam at the base of the eastern flank of Mount Veeder in the Napa Valley.
