Arnot-Roberts Watson Ranch Chardonnay (2016)

Product Description

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 on marine deposits over limestone. This soil type is extremely rare on the North Coast and is coupled with organic farming techniques, giving this parcel great potential to produce Chardonnay of singular character, structure and nuance.

What the Experts say


Robert Parker

Offering up pretty aromas of fresh, green orchard fruit, honey and a subtle top note of smoky reduction, the 2016 Chardonnay Trout Gulch Vineyard is medium-bodied, elegantly textural and pure, with bright acids and good depth, concluding with a stony, mouthwatering finish. It’s an attractively balanced and stylistically understated Chardonnay to enjoy over the next 6 or 7 years, perhaps longer.
