The 2016 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is dazzling. Inky and dark in its fruit profile, but also light on its feet, the 2016 is all class. Hints of lavender, black pepper, mint and cloves grace the palate in an exquisite, mid-weight Syrah that emphasizes freshness and nuance. Deceptively medium in body, the 2016 has enough underpinnings of structure to drink well for many years. This is a fabulous appellation-level Syrah. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2018)

Team drinks at Aldo Sohm's wine bar continues with this Syrah from Arnot Roberts. My view is that pretty much everything these guys make is delicious. This bright, dark fruits, bacon fat, rich, enveloping wine is beguiling. One sip requires a second, and necessitates a third, until the glass is empty.

Gorgeous Syrah. Great purity of fruit and expression of the more floral side of the varietal. Low alcohol, medium-bodied and elegant with lingering acidity. It’s so refreshing to taste these wines, devoid of new oak and heavy extraction. Pursuit of balance attained in Sonoma Coast.

The 2015 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is another of the many highlights in this range from Arnot-Roberts. Inky and intense, and yet light on its feet, the 2015 has it all. Violet, lavender and black pepper add aromatic nuance. The 2015 was done with 100% whole clusters, but the stems aren't especially noticeable. This is a fabulous wine from Duncan Arnot and Nathan Roberts. Even better, it is a stunning value. Don't miss it! (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Mar 2017)

Väldigt koncentrerad med mörka bär, ljuvliga färska örter och söt lakrits. Hög syra och strävhet och långt strävt slut. Gott redan nu, lär vara magiskt om 5–10 år. Dyrt men ganska prisvärt (431kr)

So sultry and juicy. Loads blueberry, plum and sawed off cedar. It’s meaty, earthy, ripe. Layers of sweet tobacco, violets and black pepper. Beautiful now and will only get better.

Way young, lots of sharp tannins until decanted, then mellowed and gained depth. Give it another couple of years.
