Discover the extraordinary Que Syrah 2022 from Arnot-Roberts, a singularly brilliant wine reminiscent of the finest Cornas. Emerging from the distinguished Taylor Lane district -  alongside vineyards like Summa and Thieriot - this Syrah is a symphony of finesse and layered complexity. 
97/100 - The 2022 Syrah Que Syrah Vineyard is fabulous and also a fine follow-up to the 2021, especially considering the challenges of the year. Inky dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice fill out the layers. The 2022 is perhaps not quite as deep or explosive as the 2021, but it is pretty close. The Que Syrah remains one of the most distinctive Syrahs in California. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 
Que Syrah Vineyard is a true gem on the Sonoma Coast. The vines were planted above the town of Occidental in 1994 by Al and Virginia Rago, about three miles from the Pacific at 850’ elevation. This is the oldest planting of Syrah on the Sonoma Coast, and credit goes to both the Ragos and to Ehren Jordan for being true mavericks in cool-climate farming of this grape variety in California.

With no reference point at that time for Syrah planted in such a cold area, they named the vineyard as a play on the Spanish phrase “que sera, sera” that translates to “whatever will be, will be.” Beginning in 2013, Arnot-Roberts became the lucky stewards of this site and now have complete control over the farming with the care of Greg Adams and his crew. Their first efforts from the vineyard have exceeded their already high expectations, as evidenced by their being awarded a perfect score by Antonio Galloni for their work during the 2021 vintage.

The vines at Que Syrah enjoy a long and cool growing season and are naturally self-regulated, finding their balance of canopy to fruit nicely on this forested coastal ridgetop. The wines that have made to date are electrifying in their spicy, aromatic personality and fill the glass with a mix of brilliant fuchsia color and vibrant briary fruit. Que Syrah has already shown strong potential in the cellar and, like the great wines of the Northern Rhone Valley, its riches will develop for years to come as bottles mature in the cellar.
