Welcome to our latest Super Spy Sunday, where each Sunday we endeavor to bring you a super high-end wine - at a super low price.

Super Spy Sunday delivers once again! Today’s Doce Robles 2012 Estate Reserve Paso Robles Robles Rojos is yours to steal. Just be sure to hurry, this wine may not last the day. If you’re looking for a budget-friendly, food-fantastic red blend, look no further. This wine is loaded with fruit - and made for food.

This entry from Doce Robles gives us a dense, but not completely opaque, wine of crimson coloring spreading out to magenta at the edge. Right up front, the wine is very enticing as the nose unfolds with notes of dried roses, cranberry, currants, sandalwood, and allspice. The palate is a fruit-forward medley of strawberry, maraschino cherry, nectarine, milk chocolate, and marmalade. This wine is a well constructed California blend with acidity, tannin, alcohol, and fruit all robust and doing their respective job, yet doing so in harmony. For a pairing, try a sweet and savory dish such as honey glazed ham roasted with pineapple medallions.

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.
