The 2015 Syrah Que Syrah Vineyard powerful, rich and also massively tannic. Bright, pungent and super-expressive, the 2015 possesses notable intensity as well as structure. I don't see the finesse of the other wines in the lineup, but time may ultimately have something to say about that. Ripe red cherry, pomegranate, mint, chalk and wild herbs built into the deep finish. The 100% whole clusters are pretty much buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Arnot-Roberts fans will note a few changes to the range this year. Sadly, there is no Legan Pinot Noir in 2015, as there was essentially nothing to harvest in the field after what turned out to be a very challenging growing season. The same was true of the Trousseau off Bohan Ranch. Arnot-Roberts lost their access to Pinot Noir from Trout Gulch, but have added Pinot from Clary Ranch in exchange. Lastly, Nathan Roberts and his wife recently purchased the Que Syrah vineyard. It's hard to know where to start with these current releases. The 2015 Syrahs are off the charts. I was also quite impressed with the 2014 Cabernets, wines that continue to gain in both complexity and precision. But with one or two exceptions where the growing season was too punishing, these are all terrific wines that will delight those lucky enough to find them. -94 AG
