Gamay From On High:
2019 Arnot-Roberts Gamay El Dorado

Posted by Joe Salamone

Hailing from two vineyards between 2,800 and 3,300 feet, Arnot-Roberts turns out a stunning Gamay that can easily rival top Beaujolais.

For many years, Arnot-Roberts has been producing some of the most exciting wines in the New World. Arnot-Roberts' wines are some of the top examples of the "new California".

Their range covers everything from Cabernet, Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay to the obscure field blends and varietals, like Ribolla Gialla, and Trousseau. Their Gamay is among the few examples of the grape from California and one of the best examples from the New World. 

Arnot-Roberts' style is about a freshness, delicacy, and nuance. Their approach results in an irresistible expression of Gamay. 

The Gamay is sourced from two high altitude vineyards in the Sierra Foothills, Barsotti and Witters. There's a crackling acidity with suave, spicy and bright red fruits. It has a striking aromatic complexity. 

The El Dorado Gamay shows California's potential to produce utterly drinkable wines. The 2019 is an especially fresh vintage. It's a bottle that you'll want to return to and we're offering special 3-pack pricing for that reason.
