Robledo 2005 Proprietary Red Blend Los Braceros

Robledo's 2005 "Los Braceros" Red honors the historical Bracero Program that enabled thousands of Latino laborers to work in California agriculture during World War II. The Sonoma Valley wine industry greatly benefited from this program, and can attribute much of its success to the hard work of Bracero workers. This rich, flavorful Red Blend comprises Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah, and the result is truly distinctive to Sonoma Valley and to the Robledo Family Winery. Bright red garnet in color, the Los Braceros Red Blend has luscious aromas of black currant, ripe plum and hints of tobacco with balanced flavors of ripe black fruit and cedar on the palate. The finish lingers with a spicy peppery note that asks for Mexican beef empanadas or anything off the barbecue. Robledo Family Winery's 2005 "Los Braceros" Red Blend was awarded a Best of Class and Gold Medal from the Los Angeles International Wine Competition in addition to a Gold Medal from the Florida State Fair Wine Competition. An excellent achievement from Robledo Familiy Winery with a wonderful story behind it! [+]
