2016 Arnot-Roberts North Coast Trousseau

SKU #1301770 92 points John Gilman

 Arnot-Roberts was the pioneer when it comes to bottling Trousseau on its own from northern California and this cuvée has justifiably developed quite a following. The 2016 version comes in at a cool 12.5 percent octane and is a classic, pale ruby color, with a touch of amber at the rim. The bouquet is already developing the autumnal tones that Trousseau is so famous for, as it wafts from the glass in a fine blend of desiccated cherries, forest floor, bonfires, lovely soil tones, a touch of coffee grounds and a topnote of pepper. On the palate the wine is medium-full, complex and very transparent, with tangy acids, modest tannins and a long, autumnally complex finish. This is a lovely example that really makes one think of the Jura! 2017-2025+.  (8/2017)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
