Editorial Reviews for Vina Robles Red4
Intense leather and boysenberry with integrated vanilla, spice, oak, raw meat, black pepper, a bit hot. -Big, intensely fruity with wild blueberry and plummy fruit. Rich, yet with excellent balance. Very finely managed tannin gives this an almost silky feel, touches of coffee, butterscotch and chocolate twizzler add complexity to the black cherry fruit on the mid-palate. Finishes with surprising freshness and a nice lingering mineral/toast note and even a final flourish of violets. A touch youthful with woody tannin sticking out a bit ,but with the balance and depth to come together beautifully. Needs a few months to fully integrate. A solid value for a rather big, fruit forward pleaser. 87pts
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.
Great malbec-esque purple color without the teeth staining ink. Harmonius blend which has the masculinity of the Petite Sirah, razor sharp acidity of the Syrah, and the color most likely comes from the small amount of Tannat. The perfect food for this are turkey/chicken teriyaki meatballs.
Great red blend. Nice mouth feel. One can almost detect every grape with enough time, but the petit syrah really carries this home...
Nice blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah. Dark, acidic, full bodied, fruit forward (think of sour cherries), smooth finish, pleasant, and great for pairing with a variety of foods.

Dark vibrant garnet with aromas of black cherry and plum with dark currant and spice, violets and toasty oak. A lush, fresh and fruity wine with dense blackberry, ripe cherry and vanilla notes.
This blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Tannat, and Touriga makes for a big, powerful red.
