Fantastic! Drank over two days and watched it grow up a bit. Came out of the bottle a little coy but really came alive. Medium bodied but with a meaty, greasy flavor, underpinned with wildflowers and spice. Terrifically balanced with lots of depth.

Too young and too much purple fruit. I could hear it saying 'let me grow up a little'. Nonetheless... delicious.

This was a treat. I brought this as a classic style of Syrah from Sonoma Coast for blind tasting night. Bright overtone red fruit, light funkiness, grilled meat character, and dried lavender. They may not have been known first for their Syrah, but they sure are ridiculously delicious. Worth every penny, and this one was a lil young, so worth aging as well.

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.
