Arnot-Roberts

Posted by outthere, May 4, 2013.

Today was pick-up day at Arnot-Roberts. They poured 8 wines.

  • 2012 Rose of Touriga Nacional 
  • 2011 Compagni Portis White Field Blend
  • 2011 Ribolla Gialla Vare Vineyard
  • 2011 Griffins Lair Syrah
  • 2011 Clary Ranch Syrah
  • 2010 Bugay Cabernet
  • 2010 Clajeux Cabernet
  • 2010 Fellom Ranch Cabernet

Across the line, what a great release. The whites were crisp but structured. The Syrahs were young, the Clary is off the charts with black olive, Came in at 20 brix! Let the Grffins hide for a few years The Cabs were great as well. The Bugay was huge and the Fellom had just an incredible mountain fruit nose.

Fox and JD I got your wines. Time to hook up!

Great wines. 

I especially like the upside-down photos. Puts it all into perspective!

Hey - I have a redirect virus. Thought I was just redirected to the most important part of the bottles!

Looking good...that Fellom Ranch bottle looks handsome. You guys did well to pick up that ultra cool Syrah.

So we have to get Ipads to correct the problems your Ipad causes?  Sounds like an Apple user to me! I do have an Ipad, but good luck getting it away from my kids.  Great for games. Not that I'm saying it's a toy.  Anyway, lots of us access this in spare moments at work.  No Ipads here.

Thanks for picking those up.  None of those will see the light of day for many years.  I'm not drinking anything more recent than 2009 right now, and the backlog of Syrah grows.  What we call a good problem to have.

Sure enough, I saw the pictures straight up on my iphone later yesterday. PC at work here, too.

The other day it was impressed on me that I was doing a public service for those of us who are Apple-deprived, by flipping these pictures.  Sorry, I've been somewhat delinquent.
