2019 Arnot Roberts North Coast Trousseau
This is a founder favorite. We only get a small allocation of it every year and usually half of it goes home with the team. 100% whole cluster with hints of blood orange, mint, crushed flowers, spice, dried rose petal and anise on the finish. Serve slightly chilled!
Trousseau is one of those extremely rare and versatile varietals that pairs well with a wide variety of foods and almost every occasion. It will not disappoint!

Arnot-Roberts Wines is a joint project of schoolhood friends, Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Since founding their winery in 2001, the duo has been one of the most progressive and revolutionary producers on the California landscape. Together with a small group of fellow trailblazers, they have led the way to help redefine the paradigm of what California wine can be and taste like.
Like all great winemakers, the cornerstone of their approach starts with a dedication to finding uber-distinctive and often extreme and unique vineyard sites spanning from Mendocino County to the north and to the far reaches of the Santa Cruz Mountains to the south. Interestingly, before Arnot-Roberts, the majority of these vineyards had been previously completely unknown or totally unheralded (e.g. Clary Ranch for Syrah, Fellom Ranch for Cabernet, Luschinger for Trousseau, and Trout Gulch for Chardonnay, among many others). It has only been due to their uncanny sleuthing ability – seeing what might be “possible’ – that the duo has been able to understand and unlock the potential of these amazing vineyard sites.
Of course, when the opportunity to tap some of California’s historic vineyards rose, Duncan and Nathan seized the opportunity! Some of these include Coastlands and Que Syrah in the Sonoma Coast, Peter Martin Ray in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and Montecillo atop Sonoma Mountain.
