From a site in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Fellom Ranch is the clear standout in this flight of 2011 Cabernet Sauvignons. A super-classic profile of sweet tobacco, spices, plums and new leather wraps around the palate. Like all of the 2011 Cabernets here, the 2011 is medium in body, gracious and built to be enjoyed sooner rather than later. --  Arnot-Roberts was founded in 2001 in Healdsburg, California by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Duncan and Nathan grew up in the midst of vineyards and winemakers in the Napa Valley. Each took an interest in the wine industry, with Nathan following his father’s lead as a cooper, and Duncan pursuing winemaking in renowned wineries in Napa and Sonoma.      The focus of this two person operation is on small lot, single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir, as well as several other varieties uncommon in Northern Californian vineyards. Through good fortune and a keen eye, they have  identified vineyard sources that are both singular and extraordinary. Collaboration with dedicated and passionate growers is paramount in the farming of these sites and vinification of their wines.
