Wine Enthusiast 94 Editor's Choice
This is a screamingly good deal, offering both hedonistic pleasure and complexity through a blend of 41% Syrah, 35% Petite Sirah, 12% Grenache and 12% Tannat. Aromas of roasted cherry, smoked meat and cola spice lead into a hearty palate of black currant, roasted game and licorice. It's balanced by bright acidity, making for a sip that will satisfy many. MATT KETTMANN

Vina Robles Description

A caretaker of trees, The Arborist pays homage to the iconic Paso Robles oaks.
This estate blend is made mainly of varieties grown in our Huerhuero Vineyard, located
directly behind our winery in the rolling hills of Paso Robles. Here, warm afternoons and
cool evening breezes shepherd the grapes to perfect ripeness.  The clusters were picked during the cooler morning temperatures and cold soaked for two days prior to fermentation. Various pump-over techniques were implemented during progressive stages of fermentation to enhance fruit extraction and balance= out the tannin structure. The wine was then aged in both small and large format French, Hungarian and American oak barrels for 18 months in order to add complexity while enhancing a soft, velvety finish. This fruit-forward wine is a natural go-to for just about any meal.
Through our partnership with One Tree Planted, we plant trees with a portion of the proceeds from every bottle of The Arborist sold.
