Signature is defined as a “distinctive characteristic that denotes one’s identity”. Our 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 grape Petit Verdot along with two Rhône varieties Syrah and Petite Sirah. Petit Verdot flourishes in the microclimates of our Huerhuero Vineyard where it produces wines with deep color, rich flavor and good tannic structure. Huerhuero Vineyard Syrah gives us big, aromatic wines with wonderful color and rounded tannins. Petite Sirah performs exceptionally well in our warm climate and gives a wine of substance, color and richness. This unique and complex blend is an elegant yet powerful statement of the best qualities of Vina Robles grown fruit.
