Vina Robles Red4 2013
Aromas of cherries, with notes of bergamot, juniper berry, leather and tobacco. The palate is medium bodied with sweet cherry fruit; chewy tannnins and hints of cocoa on the finish.
Wine EnthusiastPepper, lavender, cranberry and iodine aromas lead the nose of this easy-drinking blend of 41% Petit Sirah, 40% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 9% Grenache. The palate is tense and tart, its dried red fruit melding with graphite, nori and black pepper flavors.

Wine AdvocateA touch charmless, with dry tannin and notes of oak, spice and dark fruit, the 2013 Red 4 (41% Petite Sirah, 40% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 9% Grenache) is best enjoyed in its youth.
