Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this vintage were hand picked and sorted for quality in the vineyard. the final blend was chosen after numerous tasting sessions. The grapes from the Jardine vineyard contribute dense, dark fruit with great tannin structure. The Creston Valley Vineyard adds touches of minerality, while Huerhuero adds dark color, fresh berry aromas and spicy characteristics. a percentage of Syrah from Cammatta Hills brings flesh and body to the blend. together, they create a wine displaying complexity, structure and balance.

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.
