Winemaker's Notes:

Deep cherry red. Intense aromas of plums, and zesty cherry with a hint of spice, smoke and vanilla. Ripe, rich and sweet with medium body and great extract. A long finish with ripe tannins and good structure.

About Vina Robles:

Vina Robles is the realization of a long-held dream. It is the collaboration of international talents and recognition of an area of exceptional viticultural promise. It began as the world-wide search by Hans Nef, a Swiss restaurateur and developer, for the perfect place to grow Bordeaux and Rhone varietals.

With the help of California-based friend and business partner, Hans Michel, Paso Robles on California’s Central Coast was selected, as it was rapidly becoming known for the production of wines of noteworthy quality.

As a result, Hans Nef purchased the oak studded land that would become the Vina Robles estate in 1996. After careful site studies and mapping, the appropriate rootstocks and varieties were chosen and a vineyard was planted the following year. In 1998 Viticultural Management, Inc was established as a viticultural services and consultancy company, providing expertise to Central Coast wine grape growers and to Vina Robles. The first estate wines were crafted by Swiss winemaker Matthias Gubler in 1999.
