Bought this wine on a discount - being a fan of the white counterpart. The nose is very Rhone Ranger with black cherry, pomegranate and stewed strawberry. On entry, there is wonderful, powerful red fruit - much like a Rhone-Villages with pedigree. Good finish with residual tannin (some storage for 2-3 years fine). Good grip but quite elegant. Some rusticity but I don't really understand the understated reviews on this wine. Excellent value. 88 points.

The last vintage I had was the 2007. This one is different, the Grenache lightens the load compared to the Petite Sirah / Syrah blend of the 07 vintage, a dark-fruity medium bodied red similar to the typical Australian GSM. 86 pts. and looking forward to the next vintage. It seems like Vina Robles likes to switch things up in their blends to keep it interesting.

Dunkles Violett, Im Bouquet viel dunkelbeerige Noten und feiner Kaffeeduft. Am Gaumen weich und saftig mit voller Frucht von reifen, süssen Beeren, Pflaumen, Kirschen und Gewürzen. Leicht holzige Nuancen. Dem Côtes-du-Rhône nachempfunden.
