I was completely unaware of this producer until speaking with steve8 and he mentioned Arnot-Roberts, your mention of him in your Kramer thread, and that they recently arrived here in Montreal.
That all piqued my interest, so on the way home yesterday, I stopped in to pick one up and try.
At 14% just a touch hot on the nose when initially poured but this blows off over several minutes. An absolutely provocative nose. Gorgeous. Continued to expand over the next hour and then plateaued. Nice mouth feel. Mid length finish. At $55 (SAQ price) will I load up? No. But I will pick up a couple more. I agree that this is one of the more restrained California Syrahs and appreciate the style very much.
