Rabbit Ridge Allure de Robles – A Rhone Clone


The 2013 Rabbit Ridge Allure de Robles was purchased on a whim one day while searching for a decent bottle of wine for under $10. At just $5.99, figured it was worth the try.

Let’s just say we are glad we bought it. It’s a perfect weekday drink that won’t break the budget and its yummy too–although we prefer it just a tad bit chilled.

The wine is produced an bottled out of Paso Robles, CA and is a medium-bodied, barrel aged wine with a note of raspberries, blackberries, black currants and pepper.

The nose of the wine has a nice berry mixture, with floral and vanilla that comes through. It’s a smooth drink that ends with spicy peppery notes. The finish is neither too long nor short.’

This wine is all about value and its worth buying a case just to have around when needed.
