The Power of 4 — this Paso blend is more delicious than the sum of its parts. It combines grapes from our prestigious Huerhuero Vineyard, located in the rolling hills of Paso Robles, where warm afternoons and cool evening breezes guide the grapes to perfect ripeness. Vina Robles’ RED4 blend showcases the structure of Petite Sirah, the forward fruit of Grenache, the spice and cherry qualities of Syrah, and the rustic character of Mourvèdre. An intriguing, youthful wine; your perfect dinner companion.

Enjoy now through 2014.
