Arnot-Roberts - Fox Creek Pinot Noir Carmel Valley 2021
The focus of Arnot-Roberts is to produce distinctive, site-driven wines that highlight the nature of the unique terroirs in which the grapes are grown. The journey to this end has led Duncan and Nathan to seek out vineyards throughout Northern California and now includes incredible sites in Napa Valley, Sonoma Coast, Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Rita Hills, Clearlake and Sierra Foothills. Single-vineyard wines are the core of the production as well as a few appellation bottlings that clearly speak of their individual upbringings. Some of the vineyards are old and dry-farmed, some are newer plantings but all are farmed and cared for by passionate and conscientious growers, which is paramount to the fundamental goal of Arnot-Roberts: producing the most honest and expressive wines possible.
Vinous Media: 94 Points
The 2021 Pinot Noir Fox Creek Vineyard is bright and finely sculpted. Crushed red berry fruit, orange peel, mint, crushed rocks and intense veins of minerality all come through in this vivid, beautifully nuanced Pinot. The vibrant, transparent style that emerges from this site at 1,100 feet in elevation is so alluring.
