Today we welcome back Doce Robles Winery, who has become one of our most popular winery partners. Their wines deliver great value at any price - but especially when we show their wines at 50% off as we do with today’s 2012 Paso Robles Petite Sirah Estate Reserve. This bright, juicy wine is a great food companion!
Sweet and spice and everything nice on the nose, with aromas of blackberry, baked apple, spice box, baker’s chocolate, leather, and cigar box. Juicy and bright on the palate, with flavors of tart cherry, young blackberry, Bing cherry, soft spice, red candy apple, supple leather and black pepper.
The small-production Doce Robles Winery is the very first winery to have appeared on the now winery-heavy Highway 46. Doce Robles’ neighbors include the likes of Peachy Canyon, Sextant and Castoro Cellars… to name just a few. Doce Robles planted their vineyards in 1996 to Barbera, Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Primitivo, Petite Sirah and Malbec were also planted in 2010 and 2012.
Dark crimson hues, from core to edge, with a lovely translucency throughout.
Blackberry, baked apple, spice box, baker’s chocolate, leather, and cigar box.
Tart cherry, young blackberry, Bing cherry, soft spice, red candy apple, supple leather and black pepper.
Starts off bright, with bold red fruits that coat the entire palate. Then, as these fruits fade, leather and spice take over as soft tannins dry the edges of the palate.
Enjoy this wine with glazed pork loin, a juicy platter of ribs or your favorite pasta with red sauce.
