He was mentored by John Kongsgaard and worked side by side with Pax Malhe, Northern California's cult syrah specialist, until June 2008. The "Roberts" in Arnot-Roberts, is Nathan Lee Roberts, second generation master cooper, whose grandmother is Margot Biever Mondavi; Nathan's mother Annie Roberts was executive chef at Robert Mondavi Winery....
Trousseau is the thinnest skinned grape that the winery works with this unique variety is appreciated for its ability to make a wine that is light in color but packed with flavour. Trousseau is an extremely versatile wine that will pair well with a wide variety of foods and occasions.
The North Coast Appellation Trousseau is sourced from the three distinct vineyards; Luchsinger, Bohan Ranch and Bartolomei. The soil and weather in these sites are distinct from each other and as a result yield fruit with singular personalities.
Grapes are harvested and fermented separately, without destemming. The resulting wines are aged by grape varietal in a mix of neutral French oak barrels and stainless steel. Blending takes place in the early spring and the wine is bottled without fining or filtration in early May.
