  • Recommended - Laurie Daniel / The Grape Vine - The Tribune, August 2008
    “If shellfish or a firm-fleshed fish is on the menu, consider this rich viognier from Paso Robles. It’s creamy yet bright, with white stone fruit flavors and a hint of pineapple.”

2006 +
2006 Chardonnay, Edna Ranch
  • 87 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, November 2007 "Pale gold. Ripe peach and nectarine scents are complemented by dusty minerals and fresh florality. Plush, slightly warm pit fruit flavors are gently lifted by soft acidity, this packs plenty of fruit."
  • 4-Stars - Restaurant Wine, January 2008
    “Great value: full bodied. Moderately complex chardonnay, with ripe fruit character (apple, pear), light oakiness, and overtones of roasted nut, peach, lemon peel, and vanilla. Long finish.”
2006 Sauvignon Blanc, Jardine Vineyard
  • 4 1/2 Glasses - NYC Wine Report, October 2007 "Vina Robles is emerging as one of Paso Robles' premier wine producers. Their 2006 Sauvignon Blanc hits the bullseye. It's a marvelous high-wire act that ballances subtle creaminess, lush fruit and clean acidity. This Sauvignon Blanc will linger on your palate and won't soon be forgotten."
2006 Roseum, Huerhuero Vineyard
  • 88 Points - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, November 2007
    “Dark pink. Fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas are brightened by citrus zest and wet stones. Fleshy, seemingly off-dry red berry flavors are supple and deep, finishing with good persistence. A weighty, fruity style of pink wine that I would pair with spicy Asian dishes.”
  • Exceptional - Dan Berger’s Vinatge Experiences, May 3, 2007
    “A rosé that competes with the best I have had in the last few years!”

2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Magnum (1.5 liter)
  • Four Stars Restaurant Wine, September 2008 Fleshy and very ripely flavored, this is a rich, Zin-like Cabernet, with good balance and a very long finish, tasting of plum and blackberry jam, with overtones of toast, cedar, and aniseed.
  • Best Buy - Robert Whitley, Wine Talk, September 2008
    “Forward and supple, this latest vintage of cabernet from Vina Robles is typical of Paso, showing lovely, soft red fruit and an attractive floral characteristic that is nothing if not alluring. Cabernets of this ilk from Paso have an uncanny ability to age despite the appearance they are built for the short haul. That said, it’s yummy now and good to go as soon as you might be moved to open it.”

2005 Petite Sirah, Jardine Vineyard
  • Exceptional – Dan Berger, Dan Berger’s Vintage Experiences, April 3, 2008
  • Wine of the Week - About Wine, November 2007 “Vina Robles has produced a beautiful Petite Sirah. This is a full-bodied, full-flavored, full-colored red wine that can certainly hold its own. The flavor profile speaks of dark fruit, particularly plum and blackberry spring to the top of the palate while the subtler voices of vanilla and peppery spice sing in the background. This is a ritzy wine find that is more than suitable for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner selections. Additional preferred pairings include rich sausage, prime rib and grilled entrees.”
  • 88 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, November 2007 “Glass-staining ruby. Sexy red and dark berry aromas, with gentle oak spice and floral qualities adding interest. Plum and cherry on the palate, which displays a sweet, tannin-free personality, quite unlike most examples of this often rugged variety. Finishes sweet and persistent.”
  • Laurie Daniel / The Grape Vine - The Tribune / San Jose Mercury News, October 2007 “Despite the name petite sirah is usually a big, bold wine. That’s true of this one, but it also manages to retain some elegance. The wine is dark and dense, with ripe-yet-bright blueberry and black raspberry fruit and fine tannins.”
2005 RED4, Blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre
  • Robert Rich’s Flavor Notes, September 2007
    “One of my favorite budget red wines of the day. The Portuguese varietals aren't clearly evident, but might be adding a tiny tannic backbone and some dark chocolate to the blend. The wine has an open feel on the palate, not lingering nor saturated but very tasty. I plan to buy some for myself.”

  • - Restaurant Wine, May 2008
  • Laurie Daniel / The Grape Vine - The Tribune / San Jose Mercury News, December 2007
    “Signature is unusual in that’s it’s based on petit verdot, which makes up more than half the blend: Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah account for the rest. It offers generous rich, bright black cherry and raspberry fruit, accented by some toasty oak. The texture is plump and supple, though the wine has plenty of structure.”

    “Classic warm counry Petite Sirah, a bit of a brute in its youth, it should hold well for 10 years.”
