Signature is defined as a “distinctive characteristic that denotes one’s identity”. Our 2006 Signature blend is made from three grape varieties that winemaker Matthias Gubler feels are the ultimate expression of Vina Robles’ terroir. It is a blend of the Bordeaux varietals Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon with the Rhône varietal Syrah. Petit Verdot flourishes in the microclimates of our Huerhuero Vineyard where it produces wines with deep color, rich flavor and good tannin structure. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are from Adelaida Springs Ranch on the West side of Paso Robles, where the fruit shows wonderful fresh berry character and lends great acid structure for balance. From a cool site in Eastern Paso Robles, the Ryan Road Vineyard Syrah gives us big, aromatic wines with dark color and rounded tannins. This unique and complex blend is elegant yet powerful.

Enjoy now through 2016.

Tasting Notes

  • Color: Dark, saturated garnet
  • Aroma: Intense aroma of dark fruit, including notes of blueberry, preserved fruits and all spice complimented by toasty oak
  • Taste:  This is a full-bodied wine, concentrated on the palate, supple with a lush mouth  feel; complex and refined tannins; primary flavors of blueberry and blackberry with hints of tobacco and a long finish.
