The Mighty Oaks

We’ve only been showcasing the wines of Doce Robles since 2016, but in that time, they’ve become our most popular Paso Robles winery - by a longshot! Today’s delectable Doce Robles 2013 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is predicted to become our best-selling wine from this Operative-favorite winery…

This Paso Cab looks approachable in the glass with a bright crimson hue around the outer edge. The nose is evocative of the terroir with a rich straw and dusty bramble aroma that smoothly segues into notes of strawberry, cherry, and rhubarb red fruit. On the palate, the ripe fruit flavor comes to the fore with dulcet tones of plum compote, cherry pie, and fruitcake with notes of leather, tobacco, and dates. Its powerful fruit forward flavor is evidence of Paso Robles’ hot days with nice, restrained tannin making for a Zinfandel lover’s Cabernet. Perfect for Mexican food: Try it with al pastor or carnitas tacos and hot sauce.

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.

Enjoy!
