Robert Parker Wine Advocate Awards High Points to Vina Robles

Robert Parker Wine Advocate recently reviewed some of our estate wines. We are thrilled to announce the high ratings we received!


2012 Suendero - 90 Points
$54.00/retail; $43.20/Wine Club
"Easily the star of the show, the 2012 Suendero (79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec) offers classic Cabernet notes of cassis, toasted bread,  jammy blackberries and toasted spice in its full-bodied, beautifully textured personality. It has ripe tannin, solid mid-palate depth and tons of charm. Drink bottles anytime over the coming decade." - Jeb Dunnuck

2015 WHITE4 - 89 Points
$16.00/retail; $12.80/Wine Club
"A big step up over the straightforward Sauvignon Blanc, the 2015 WHITE4 Paso Robles is mostly Viognier, yet has 23% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Verdelho and 8% Vermentino, all of which was brought up in stainless steel. Notes of citrus blossom, hay, lavender and orchard fruits all emerge from this clean, crisp and delicious white that offers plenty of character and sells for a song." - Jeb Dunnuck

What does it mean when people say a wine is “too tight?”

When a wine’s aromas and flavors are muted or not as expressive, you might hear someone using the descriptor “tight.” The cause could simply be because the wine is still young. Or, if the wine recently traveled and was seriously shaken, it may have bottle shock.

This does not mean you need to throw it out. We recommend opening the wine to let it “breathe” or decanting it. You can also hold on to your wine for some more time. Keep in mind wine is living and breathing, it deserves a second chance.

All of our wines are drinkable upon release. For aging information, please download our vintage chart.
