We appreciate highlighting the wines of Duncan Arnot Myers and Nathan Lee Roberts, a young and prominent California wine duo. Founded in 2001 after growing up surrounded by winemaking and vineyards Duncan and Nathan produce small lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Chardonnay. As a little side note, after visiting Beaujolais with Raj Parr they started another label called RPM (Roberts, Parr, Meyers) producing Gamay from the Sierra Foothills.
From the Arnot Roberts website:
The Watson Ranch vineyard is perched on a steep hillside overlooking the San Pablo Bay in the southernmost end of the Napa Valley. The vineyard can be seen on the top
of the hill just east of the Green Island Vineyard which we sourced fruit from 2007-09. Exposed and austere, the Watson Ranch is a wind whipped site planted in 1993 by the talented grower Salvador Ramos on marine deposits over limestone. This soil type is extremely rare on the North Coast and lends itself perfectly to growing world class Chardonnay. This soil coupled with organic farming techniques and cool windy conditions give this parcel great potential to produce Chardonnay of singular character.
